Bandenay has withdrawn from his featherweight matchup against Alexander Volkanovski at UFC Sydney on Nov. 18 due to a fractured right wrist, MMAFighting.com reports.
It's unclear how Bandenay picked up the injury, but it will keep him from competing in his second UFC bout. The 23-year-old fighter made his UFC debut last August at UFC Mexico City, defeating Martin Bravo vis KO at less than 30 seconds into the fight. His replacement hasn't been announced at this point.

Fantasy AnalysisBandenay was the biggest underdog on the card. He came out firing and initially landed a big head kick. It didn't phase "El Toro" who easily absorbed the strike, but then Bandenay caught him coming in with a knee. Bandenay knocked him stiff and followed up with some unnecessary punches. This was a huge victory for Bandenay because he was such a big underdog, and will also earn him a $50,000 Performance of the Night bonus.
