Well, this is why the UFC’s been placing two title fights on all the major events this year.

UFC bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw suffered a fractured rib during training, delaying his planned title defense vs. Renan Barao this April 25 at UFC 186.

UFC president Dana White revealed the news during a radio interview in Los Angeles on Tuesday.

Dillashaw posted a message via Instagram after news of the fight announcement was made, saying that it is “heart breaking to me because I was looking forward to this fight and never want to be a fighter having to pull out of a fight.”

No date for Dillashaw-Barao to take place was mentioned by White. Dillashaw won the title last year, finishing the Brazilian in the fifth round. The two were scheduled for a rematch, but Barao passed out while cutting weight.

UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson defends his title against Kyoji Horiguchi on the card from Montreal’s Bell Centre.
