An elbow injury has forced middleweight Michael Bisping (pictured) out of his UFC 193 matchup against Robert Whittaker.

Bisping will require minor surgery and is expected to be out a few weeks.

Bisping’s status was reported on this week’s edition of “UFC Tonight.”

No word if the UFC will keep Whittaker in the November 14 event or save him for another day.

Bisping has won two straight scraps, most recently taking a split decision over Thales Leites in July.

Whittaker, meanwhile, is perfect through his past three outings. He’s looking to build off May’s knockout victory over Brad Tavares.

Etihad Stadium in Melbourne, Australia hosts the festivities.

Here is the card’s current lineup:

Robert Whittaker vs. TBD

Anthony Perosh vs. Gian Villante

Steve Kennedy vs. Richard Walsh

Kyle Noke vs. Peter Sobotta

Ricardo Abreu vs. Daniel Kelly

Akbarh Arreola vs. Jake Matthews

Stefan Struve vs. Jared Rosholt

Mark Hunt vs. Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva

Valerie Letourneau vs. Joanna Jedrzejczyk (UFC strawweight champion)

Holly Holm vs. Ronda Rousey (UFC bantamweight champion)
