Middleweight mauler Brad Tavares has been bitten by the injury bug and forced to withdraw from the "Penn vs. Diaz" pay-per-view card set for Oct. 29 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

UFC officials made the announcement earlier today.

Stepping in for him against Dustin Jacoby, himself a late replacement, is promotional newcomer Clifford Starks; however, they will be sent back down to the Facebook Prelims and the bantamweight brawl between Jeff Curran and Scott Jorgensen will move up a few slots to take their place.

Because the smaller fighters are new to the UFC.Surprising Tavares fight got call up before them but completely understandable they weren't on in 1st place.

 Clearly people are going to keep getting injured until they give Siver/Cerrone their place on the pay-per-view where they belong.

WHY did they have Scott a top 10 fighter on the undercard in the first place?
