UFC Manny Gamburyan

On Monday afternoon, featherweight Manny Gamburyan announced a shoulder injury will force him out of his “UFC 135: Jones vs. Jackson” fight against Diego Nunes.

“I’m off from the UFC 135 card, I hurt my shoulder and MRI is not looking good,” Gamburyan tweeted. “I just wanna say sorry to all my friends and fans, I’ll be back!”

The Armenian was looking to rebound from back-to-back losses for the second time in his career. He was put down by featherweight champ Jose Aldo at WEC 51 in September, then followed it up with a majority decision loss to Tyson Griffin at “UFC Live 4: Kongo vs. Barry” this past June.

No word on who will replace “The Anvil” in the show.

UFC 135 takes place inside the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado and features a light heavyweight title bout between champ Jon Jones and Quinton “Rampage” Jackson.

Here is the card’s revised roster:

Diego Nunes vs. TBD

Ben Rothwell vs. Mark Hunt

James Te Huna vs. Ricardo Romero

Cole Escovedo vs. Takeya Mizugaki

Nick Ring vs. Tim Boetsch

Norifumi “Kid” Yamamoto vs. Damacio Page

Nate Diaz vs. Takanori Gomi

Tony Ferguson vs. Aaron Riley

Travis Browne vs. Rob Broughton

Diego Sanchez vs. Matt Hughes

Quinton “Rampage” Jackson vs. Jon Jones (UFC Light Heavyweight Champion)
