Jason High found out Adlan Amagov's injury from Twitter

In this day and age with social media, news can spread like wildfire. In the MMA community, that often means news that was meant to be kept under wraps may become available. This can lead to rampant speculation from fighters, fans, and media alike.

Today was a perfect example of the power of social media, and specifically Twitter. Our very own Editor-in-Chief, Josh Sanchez, tweeted today that a Russian media outlet was reporting Adlan Amagov was out of his UFC Fight Night 35 fight against Jason High. High, clearly unaware of the news, responded to Sanchez:

There is no word from the UFC yet as to Amagov’s injury, or a replacement for High.
