Alan Jouban fractures foot, out of UFC 213 fight vs. Brian Camozzi

Alan Jouban hopes you had a better Tuesday than he did.

The UFC welterweight posted an Instagram video to announce he has withdrawn from his scheduled UFC 213 fight with Brian Camozzi because of a fractured foot suffered in training.

On top of that, his car broke down.

“It turns out that I fractured my foot on Friday at sparring,” Jouban said. “I’ve been training on it for three days now with a broken foot. So that puts me out of my fight July 8th. A little bit disappointing. I’ve been healthy, training my butt off for two months. I finally get a fight, and I’m injured. So, I’m sorry to everyone, family, friends, everyone excited for it. I’m going to have to push it back a couple more weeks as soon as I can get another fight.”

The news is a bummer for both Jouban (15-5 MMA, 6-3 UFC) and Camozzi (7-3 MMA, 0-1 UFC) as the booking was just announced within the past two weeks.

Jouban was looking to rebound from having his three-fight winning streak snapped following a submission loss to Gunnar Nelson in March. The 35-year-old’s run included wins over the likes of Mike Perry and Belal Muhammad, the latter of which earned the former RFA title challenger and ex-model his third career “Fight of the Night” bonus.

Camozzi, meanwhile, recently made his UFC debut and suffered a TKO loss to Randy Brown in December. Before the setback, the 25-year-old RFA veteran, who’s the younger brother of UFC vet Chris Camozzi, was on a five-fight winning streak (with five stoppages), which ultimately earned him a UFC contract.

No word on a possible replacement for Camozzi.

UFC 213 takes place July 8 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass, though the bout order hasn’t been finalized.
