"The Hybrid" was scheduled to face Matt Mitrione at next Saturday's (July 27, 2013) UFC on FOX 8 event in Seattle, Wash.; however "Meathead" was forced to withdraw from the event just over two weeks out due to a injury.
Fortunately, the injury won't keep Mitrione out long as UFC officials have confirmed the fellow cast members from The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) reality show will clash at UFC 165: "Jones vs. Gustafsson" on Sept. 21, 2013 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
Mitrione (6-2) kept himself employed after a misconduct suspension with a brutal first-round knockout win over Philip De Fries at the UFC on FUEL TV 9 event earlier this year in Sweden. His lights-out performance over the struggling Brit snapped a two-fight losing streak.
Speaking of which...
Schaub (9-3) also rebounded from consecutive losses by taking a unanimous decision win over Lavar Johnson during the UFC 157 pay-per-view (PPV) show last February in Anaheim. While it wasn't the prettiest of victories, the 30-year-old did what he had to do to get the "W."
And keep his job.
