UFC 149: oh sweet mercy.... Siyar out injured, new bout is Chris Clements vs Matt Riddle

Read entire Twittter...

Up-and-comer Siyar Bahadurzada will now have to bow out of his July 21st scrap against Chris Clements with an undisclosed wound.

Clements initially stepped in for Thiago Alves to meet Bahadurzada after the Brazilian tore his pectoral muscle.

“Menace” posted a split decision victory over Keith Wisniewski in his big league debut at UFC 145. Clements will be riding a five-fight winning streak into the welterweight shootout.

Riddle salvaged his big league career by snapping a two-fight losing streak in his last outing. The former “The Ultimate Fighter 7″ contestant escaped with a split decision win over Henry Martinez at UFC 143.

SlyStalloned echoed my thoughts. I have tickets and am going to sell them. I'm gonna be pissed if I get 50% for them and the UFC gives a that guy a full refund the next week. I should be buying up tickets like crazy and anti-scalping.I do hope a lot of scumbag scalpers get burned hard on this one though.

The good news with this injury is that now we get the classic grappler versus striker matchup with Clements against Riddle. I'd be pumped if I had tickets.

truthNot to mention, how fucking hard would it be for the UFC to offer a couple fighters an extra 50k (or something of the sort, it's not like ZUFFA is strapped for cash...) to move their fight a week ahead to salvage this disastrous PPV?Seriously, Lauzon/Varner or Browne/Rothwell are both on the fox show like 10 days after...... hello Dana/Joe, do you have a brain? Do you want the northwest to actually have SOME level of appreciation for coming here? Fucking make something like this happen then, jesus tittyfucking christ on a triscuit.

Moving the uninjured main draw (Shogun) to another card is definitely within the realm of Dana's fault.

Heh.. man.. what can you do. It's not Dana's fault. Guys are getting injured too much. Something's gotta get changed.We can't have so many training injuries, or this low threshold for pulling out, combined with fights being announced so far ahead, you've got fights confirmed like 3 months ahead, and two guys going full speed in the gym, you are setting yourself up for cancellations.When the UFC announce huge fights in the future now, to me, it's like saying: hey, in 3 months exactly, there will be awesome weather, and blazing sun. Just guesswork, at this point.This card is just... demolished from what it was. I used to think stalling wrestlers were the worst problem in the UFC, then steroids, and now I definitely think these injuries are the worst.
