Two-time UFC lightweight title contender Kenny Florian has been forced to withdraw from his UFC Fight Night 23 tilt with Evan Dunham due to an undisclosed injury, MMAJunkie.com reports.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) has learned from sources close to the promotion that Florian suffered an undisclosed injury while training for a planned matchup with Dunham and has been forced to withdraw from the bout.

The pair was expected to meet in the main event of "UFC Fight Night 23: UFC Fight for the Troops 2," which takes place Jan. 22 at Fort Hood in Killeen, Texas.

The UFC has yet to announce the change, and it's currently unknown whether a replacement opponent will be found or if the matchup will be pushed back to a later date.

Florian's manager, Malki Kawa, declined to comment on the report when contacted by MMAjunkie.com.

Florian is coming off a unanimous decision loss to Gray Maynard at UFC 118.
