Rory MacDonald Out of UFC 152 with Cut

Rory MacDonald will be sidelined with a cut above his right eye requiring 38 stitches

At the post-fight press conference for UFC on Fox 4, Dana White announced that Rory MacDonald sustained a cut above his left eye requiring “38, 48 stitches”. White said he heard the news halfway through the fight card and that MacDonald will not be able to fight in UFC 152, slated for September 22 in Toronto.

It is unknown at this point whether BJ Penn will fight another opponent at UFC 152 or wait for MacDonald to return. It is rumored Penn will wait for MacDonald who should be ready to fight by November.
