Garry Tonon has been vocal about his desire to face Martin Nguyen in a featherweight title fight. But the American’s 2020 plans are on hold after he suffered a nasty looking cut in training.

Tonon was supposed to face UFC lightweight Dustin Poirier in a grappling match on February 21st in Miami. But his opponent announced on Twitter it was cancelled.

The reason for the cancellation became apparent when Tonon replied with a photo of the cut:

The multiple time no gi grappling world champion had been expecting to compete in MMA again in April. However he says he might have to postpone the bout if the cut re-opens.

There are currently two cards on the April calendar which Tonon could potentially compete on. ONE: ‘Infinity’ 1 is set for Jakarta on April 10th while ONE: ‘Kings & Queens’ takes place in Kuala Lumpur the following Friday.

Tonon has taken to MMA like a fish to water. He has won five fights out of five by stoppage, facing increasingly higher calibre opposition and culminating in a submission of Yoshiki Nakahara at ONE: ‘Enter the Dragon’.

Other contenders in the featherweight division include Thanh Le who has won three fights out of three for the promotion. There is also the possibility that current lightweight king Christian Lee could drop down.
