Jared Cannonier reveals pectoral injury, will not be competing at UFC 248
Jared Cannonier was originally scheduled to fight Robert Whittaker at the upcoming UFC 248 pay-per-view, however, with Whittaker pulling out of the card due to personal reasons, the bout was eventually called off.
As a replacement for Whittaker, Cannonier was expected to face UFC's newest middleweight addition Darren Till, but it looks like the former will not be facing 'The Gorilla' nor will he be serving as a back-up for either Israel Adesanya and Yoel Romero for the UFC 248 main event.
In his recent Instagram post, Cannonier revealed that he is all set to undergo surgery, and he has revealed that he had suffered a pectoral injury that will be keeping him out of action for some time.
