By Jamie Penick, MMATorch Editor-in-Chief

Ruslan Magomedov is out of his April 10 fight with Gabriel Gonzaga after suffering a knee injury.

The Russian heavyweight tweeted out an MRI of his knee this week, announcing his withdrawal from the bout at UFC Fight Night 86.

Magomedov has won all three of his fights in the UFC thus far, extending his winning streak to nine fights. There’s no announcement on a replacement for Gonzaga as of yet, but the longtime Brazilian vet will be trying to win his second straight after a bad fight with Konstantin Erokhin in December.

UFC Fight Night 86 is the UFC’s first ever trip to Croatia, as they come to Zagreb with an event headlined by Junior dos Santos vs. Ben Rothwell. It’s expected to air live on Fox Sports 1.
