Yanan Wu has been left without an opponent for UFC Shenzen after an injury to Luana Carolina. Monday night the news was broken by MMA Fighting that Carolina suffered a fractured spine, taking her off the late August card.
With just over a month before the card, UFC will have to find someone quickly if they plan on finding a replacement opponent. Wu was scheduled to be one of the five Chinese fighters on the card.
