    The Icelandic welterweight contender recently released a statement on Instagram explaining what happened, and according to the BJJ standout, the injury occurred during a UFC open workout.

    “I was so much looking forward to fighting again in Ireland and now its not happening because of a stupid ankle twist that ironically happened in a UFC open workout!! It happened at 1:08…

    Same thing that happened with gloves, rounds, weight classes, rules, etc... too much pussification in this country.

    With u on this one. As much as I wanna see fighters fight thru injury, if it's going to affect you in every aspect of the fight it's better to wait.. Fighting on a hurt ankle is no easy task
