Caio Magalhaes out of UFC 184 bout with Mark Munoz

Guilherme Cruz, MMA Fighting

Mark Munoz won’t be facing Caio Magalhaes at UFC 184 after all.

Moments after the official announcement from the promotion, Magalhaes told he won’t face "The Filipino Wrecking Machine" in Los Angeles on Feb. 28.

"Unfortunately, I won’t be able to fight," Magalhaes said. "I had a teeth pulled before my last fight and had an infection. After my last fight, I had another teeth pulled and it’s swollen, so I will have to undergo surgery next week to fix it. And I will probably lose bone around my teeth."

"I will be able to fight at the end of March," he added. "I will be 100 percent to fight Mark Munoz or anyone else the UFC wants."

Magalhaes (9-1) is currently riding a four-fight winning streak in the UFC, the past couple via quick knockouts over Trevor Smith and Luke Zachrich. Munoz (13-5) makes his return in 2015 after back-to-back stoppage losses to Lyoto Machida and Gegard Mousasi.

Munoz's manager Morgan Smith told MMA Fighting that the UFC will look for a new opponent for Mark Munoz at UFC 184.
