Fractured Foot Forces Alan Jouban Out of UFC 213 Bout vs. Brian Camozzi

By Tristen Critchfield Jun 6, 2017


Alan Jouban has been forced to withdraw from his scheduled UFC 213 bout against Brian Camozzi after suffering a fractured foot in sparring.

The UFC welterweight announced the news via Instagram on Tuesday. The promotion has not yet revealed a replacement opponent for Camozzi.

“Had to go to the doctor because my foot was hurt and it turns out that I fractured my foot Friday at sparring. I’ve been training on it for three days now with a broken foot. That puts me out of my fight July 8,” Jouban said. “I’m a little been disappointed. Been healthy, training my butt off for two months. Finally get a fight and I’m injured. I’m sorry to everyone….I’m gonna have to push it back a couple more weeks – as soon as I can get another fight.”

Jouban had a three-fight winning streak snapped in his most recent appearance at UFC Fight Night 107, when he was submitted 46 seconds into the second round by Gunnar Nelson. The 34-year-old Louisiana native is 6-3 during his tenure with the Las Vegas-based promotion.

UFC 213 takes place at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on July 8 and is headlined by a women’s bantamweight showdown between Amanda Nunes and Valentina Shevchenko.
