    Re: UFC fight announcement thread

    Gabriel Gonzaga is out of his fight with Roy Nelson at UFC 146 due to a back injury; Dave Herman takes his place. Also out of UFC 146 is Evan Dunham, who was to face Edson Barboza. Dunham is replaced by Jamie Varner.

    Scott Jorgensen vs. Eddie Wineland has been moved to UFC on FX 3's main card after winning the Harley-Davidson Hometown Throwdown contest, which allowed fans to vote for one of three fights to make it to the main card.

    MMAJunkie

    Brian Stann vs. Hector Lombard on the fourth UFC event on FOX will be the headline fight.

    Yuri Alcantara vs. Hacran Dias added to UFC 147 in Brazil

    Alcantara currently boasts an impressive 13-fight win streak and is 19-1 in his past 20 fights. He made his Zuffa debut in December 2010 with a knockout win over Ricardo Lamas at WEC 53. He then transitioned to the UFC, where he has fought twice in his native Brazil, earning wins over Michihiro Omigawa and Felipe Arantes.

    The 27-year-old Dias began fighting professionally in 2005, racking up an impressive 12-0-1 mark before his first professional loss, a July 2009 decision defeat at the hands of Yui Chul Nam. Dias has since bounced back with eight-straight wins.

    Looking at their records, this could be the hottest undercard fight of the night.

    UFC 147 headliner 'official' with Vitor Belfort vs. Wanderlei Silva II

    I wonder how the Brazilians will react to a main event that is, in all likelihood, not going more than a few minutes. In fact, I somewhat expect a blow-for-blow repeat of their first fight.

    Very very likely. Wanderlei knows he can't many heavy shots from Vitor, who still has big KO power. So Wanderlei is probably going to look to swarm and overwhelm. Which means he'll leave himself open. I think this one goes down in a hurry.

    Jon Jones vs. Dan Henderson targeted for UFC 151

    As the article says, if Jones title fight with Henderson is part of Labor Day weekend, it would likely put UFC 151 on September 1st, which puts it three weeks after UFC 150 (Henderson/Edgar II) and three weeks before UFC 152.

    Terrible terrible news. Was looking forward to this fight. Any clue on who will replace Cruz or will the fight just not take place?

    The leading candidate appears to be Renan Barão, in what would probably be an interim title fight. Cruz is going to be out for long enough that the winner of Cruz/Barão might then face Michael McDonald, the guy who KO'd Torres at UFC 145.

    Barao would be a tough fight for Faber. Might mean Faber still won't get that title that Zuffa clearly wants him to win.

    Re: UFC fight announcement thread

    Akiyama is out of his fight against Thiago Alves. In his place steps Siyar Bahadurzada.

    UFC 149 now looks like this:

    MAIN CARD (Pay-per-view)

    Champ Jose Aldo vs. Erik Koch (for featherweight title)
    Mauricio "Shogun" Rua vs. Thiago Silva
    Cheick Kongo vs. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira
    Thiago Alves vs. Siyar Bahadurzada
    Michael Bisping vs. Tim Boetsch

    PRELIMINARY CARD

    Mitch Clarke vs. Anton Kuivanen
    Court McGee vs. Nick Ring
    Bryan Caraway vs. Mitch Gagnon
    Antonio Carvalho vs. George Roop
    Ryan Jimmo vs. Anthony Perosh

    MMAJunkie

    Bahadurzada makes a much more interesting opponent for Alves, at least for me.

    Dana White confirms Faber to fight at UFC 148 for the Interim Bantamweight title against an opponent to be named.

    MMAJunkie

    Dana also confirms Henderson/Edgar II for UFC 150 in Denver

    MMAJunkie

    If they can decide in time, I would expect Faber's new opponent to be named on TUF this Friday.

    Glad to see Bendo/Edgar II. Their last fight was good and wouldn't expect any different in this upcoming one. Also excited to see Matt Mitrione again, who I believe with 2 or 3 more wins will be in the contention for a title shot.

    Re: UFC fight announcement thread

    UFC 147 in Brazil is official for June 23rd and it will take place at Estadio Jornalista Felipe Drumond, a 25,000 seat facility.

    The latest UFC 147 card includes:

    Vitor Belfort vs. Wanderlei Silva
    Mike Russow vs. Fabricio Werdum
    "TUF: Brazil" featherweight finals
    "TUF: Brazil" middleweight finals
    Felipe Arantes vs. Milton Vieira
    Yuri Alcantara vs. Hacran Dias*

    MMAJunkie

    --Renan Barao said yesterday (Wednesday) that UFC has not even approached him about a fight with Urijah Faber. That would seem to indicate Michael McDonald as the primary choice. I would think the announcement of the new opponent would be made on Ultimate Fighter tomorrow night, but at least, that's how I'd do it. Either Barao or McDonald to me are equally viable.

    Providing Davis doesn't get stupid, he shouldn't have many problems here.

    Re: UFC fight announcement thread

    Chad Mendes vs. Cody McKenzie has been added to UFC 148,, which will be McKenzie's debut as a Featherweight.

    The current card for UFC 148 looks like this:

    MAIN CARD (Pay-per-view)

    Champ Anderson Silva vs. Chael Sonnen (for middleweight title)
    Urijah Faber vs. TBA (for interim bantamweight title)
    Forrest Griffin vs. Tito Ortiz
    Rich Franklin vs. Cung Le
    Dong Hyun Kim vs. Demian Maia

    PRELIMINARY CARD (FX)

    Renan Barao vs. Ivan Menjivar*
    Chad Mendes vs. Cody McKenzie
    Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Gleison Tibau
    Riki Fukuda vs. Constantinos Philippou
    Fabricio Camoes vs. Melvin Guillard
    John Alessio vs. Shane Roller


    MMAJunkie

    I've asterisked Barao/Menjivar because that fight may not happen. They, along with Michael McDonald, are the top candidates to face Urijah Faber for the Interim Bantamweight title, and with McDonald now out with an hand injury, it looks likely one of those two will get moved up to the title fight.
