After losing original opponents, Dricus Du Plessis and Anthony Hernandez paired up at UFC 273

Dricus Du Plessis and Anthony Hernandez are still fighting at UFC 273, but not against their original opponents.

Du Plessis was expected to fight Chris Curtis at the upcoming pay-per-view event set to take place on April 9 at the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Fla. Mike Heck of MMA Fighting reported on Tuesday that Curtis was forced to withdraw over a wrist injury. That report has since been corroborated by ‘The Action Man’, who explained what led to the injury in a video shared on social media.

“Last Thursday I was sparring, nothing crazy, everything normal,” said Curtis.
