Nick Catone Out of UFC 136 Fight with Aaron Simpson

Nick CatoneOne day after Leonard Garcia stepped in to rematch Nam Phan following an injury to Matt Grice, the UFC 136 fight card will undergo another change as Nick Catone has been forced out of his matchup with Aaron Simpson at the Oct. 8 event in Houston, Texas with an undisclosed injury, according to MMAFighting.

Catone (9-2) has fought just once since topping Jesse Forbes in January 2010 as he earned a unanimous decision over Constantinos Philippou in March in his native New Jersey.

Simpson (9-2) now awaits a new opponent as he looks for his third-straight win following victories over Mario Miranda and Brad Tavares.

UFC 136 is headlined by a pair of title fights, as lightweight champion Frankie Edgar rematches Gray Maynard and featherweight champ Jose Aldo faces Kenny Florian.
