Undefeated Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight attraction, Greg Hardy, has been pulled from his UFC Fight Night 162 contest against Jarjis Danho in Singapore after “Man Mountain” was felled by injury and forced to withdraw.

That’s according to a report from ESPN.

Hardy (5-1) was quickly rebooked for the UFC on ESPN 6 fight card on Oct. 18 in Boston, which takes place just a week before his previously-scheduled bout. Opposing the “Prince of War” will be fellow “Contender Series” alum Ben Sosoli.

The 6-2 Aussie saw his one and only appearance for Dana White’s proving ground end by way of “No Contest” after an accidental eye poke last month in Las Vegas. Prior to that unfortunate incident, “Seki” was the winner of three straight with three knockout finishes.

The 32 year-old Hardy ran through Juan Adams last July in San Antonio, the second straight first-round finish for “The Prince of War” after the Allen Crowder debacle in his Octagon debut. No word yet on his exact placement on the ESPN fight card, headlined by the light heavyweight showdown between Dominick Reyes and Chris Weidman.
