Report: Sean Spencer Injured, Off UFC 187 Card

By Mike Fridley Apr 23, 2015
It looks like even a little “Black Magic” could not keep the injury bug from biting UFC 187.

According to a report from MMAJunkie, Sean Spencer has been forced out of his UFC 187 matchup with Mike Pyle due to injury.

The nature of the injury is unknown at the time of this publication.

Spencer, known as “Black Magic,” was hoping to erase memories of a universally panned judges' decision against Cathal Pendred in January. Most -- if not all -- observers felt Spencer did enough to claim victory. The 27-year-old welterweight prospect holds a 12-4 professional record and is 3-3 in the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

UFC officials are likely to announce a replacement opponent for Pyle in the coming weeks. UFC 187 goes down at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, and will be headlined by a light heavyweight title match pitting champion Jon Jones against challenger Anthony Johnson.
