Goldberg, however, took to Twitter to send out a message. Jon Anik was tabbed to replace him for the card with Joe Rogan.
THANK YOU for the WELL WISHES! UFC FANS are AS REAL as IT GETS! Bummed to miss the rematch but health first. Enjoy the fights..HERE WE GO!!!
Kiarra Goldberg, Mike's daughter, also sent out a message that said, "shout out to my dad who is missing his first UFC in 25 years this weekend! feel better:)"
White said he was unsure when Goldberg would return. The next UFC card is set for Brazil on January 19.
