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.
