Laprise Off Of UFC 206 With Injury
Chatham’s Chad Laprise has had to pull out of UFC 206 due to an undisclosed injury.
The former Ultimate Fighter “Nations” winner was scheduled to fight in a welterweight contest against Li Jingliang during the December 10th event in Toronto.
Chad took to social media to voice his disappointment, and appreciation:
“Sorry to everyone but I have to withdraw from UFC 206 in Toronto because of an injury. Absolutely gutted that I can’t fight so close to home but God has a bigger plan. I will continue my rehab and come back even stronger from this. 2017 will be my year mark my words”
The 30-year-old Laprise is 11-2 professionally and is coming off a win over Thibault Gouti in August.
