Thatch suffered a compound fracture of his toe, forcing him out of UFC Fight Night 49 event, which takes place at BOK Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Thatch was actually a replacement opponent for an injured Thiago Alves, and has been impressive since debuting in the UFC picking up 2 wins in quick succession with a first round TKO against Justin Edwards in his debut, followed TKO of Paulo Thiago in another first round victory.

UFC officials have yet to announce a replacement opponent for Mein and it’s not certain they’ll be able to with just 2 weeks notice.
