UFC lost yet another main event today when Matt Brown said that he suffered an ankle injury and had to pull out of his fight with Kelvin Gastelum that was scheduled to headline UFC's debut on 11/21 at Arena Monterrey in Monterrey, Mexico.

Brown vs. Gastelum was to headline an FS 1 show at welterweight.

At this point no replacement has been announced for the show.  Gastelum was considered the main event draw on the show for the Mexican market and Brown was considered his opponent.

The show includes the finals of the current season of TUF Latin America, as well as a Henry Cejudo vs. Jussier Formiga fight that could determine the next flyweight title challenger for Demetrious Johnson.
