Ion Cutelaba won’t be fighting Glover Teixeira at UFC on ESPN+ 1 this month. However, he hopes the matchup can still take place soon. Cutelaba (14-3 MMA, 3-2 UFC) withdrew from his scheduled light heavyweight bout with former title challenger Teixeira (27-7 MMA, 10-5 UFC) on just nine days’ notice due to an undisclosed injury . Although the UFC is reportedly searching for a replacement so that Teixeira can remain on the upcoming card, Cutelaba has indicated his recovery time is only four weeks and is hopeful the promotion can instead just push the fight back to another card (via Instagram ): Unfortunately the fight is postponed! Cause (personal trauma) Sorry! Recovery time of one month. The fight will be postponed another time and yet the fight will take place!
