It is deja vu all over again for UFC matchmaker Joe Silva, as reported by Tatame.

Joe Silva hás a lot of work to do. After finding a replacement for UFC 133 fighters Phil Davis and Vladimir Matyushenko, he has to find another opponent for Rich Franklin.

Rogerio ‘Minotouro’ Nogueira, who was set to fight the former champion at the card, has suffered an injury and is out of the card.

A shoulder injury suffered in training is the cause of the withdrawl. Nogueira's return to the Octagon is not known at this point.

It looks like the UFC finally ran out of options.

After a hectic pace of shuffling in light heavyweights to key UFC 133 matchups, UFC matchmaker Joe Silva was finally forced to admit defeat.

UFC officials today announced that Antonio Rogerio Nogueira's withdrawal from the Aug. 6 event has forced the cancellation of a planned co-feature contest with Rich Franklin.

Read entire article...

Vitor Belfort vs. Yoshihiro Akiyama bout will be moved up to the co-main event. The welterweight battle between Dennis Hallman and Brian Ebersole has been moved from the prelims to the main card.

I'll be surprised if they even find a replacement for Franklin at this point unless it's at Franklin-weight against an MW like Sonnen or Leben who were chomping at the bit before.

Juice87 - Franklin v. Tito and Rashad v. Machida (Silva Money)



they cant do that to tito

one of the main reasons he took the fight was a chance to take out the "number 1 contender"

In a perfect world yes, but no way they do that at this point. Machida is not going to be getting "Silva Money" anytime soon just out of principle.

I think someone needs to put Joe Silva on suicide watch. I'm talking around the clock observation here. This guy is going to lose his mind with this card.

Someone name some 205ers that are on UFC contract (not strikeforce) that don't have a fight coming up and aren't hurt.

I can't see Rich wanting to make 185 of this notice.

Ryan Bader
Does Matt Hamil have anything going on?

Stephen Bonnar? Or what about Brandon Vera? Is he still on the roster?

Keith Jardine could do a 195 with him since last time he fought he said he was cutting down in weight. Drawing with Mousasi puts him up there with Franklin coming off a loss and UFC fans know him, even if he did fizzle out badly from the UFC.

Bonnar is hurt his left knee, Vera is fighting Elliot Marshal.

"As much fun as it would be to see King Mo step in, Dana said on call for Evans/Ortiz that Lawal wasn't ever even considered."

Matyushenko is hurt, Hamill took his place on the card, I think? Hell I can't keep up.

That's extremely likely as Vlad just pulled off this card.


Maybe Machida does not want Anderson Silva money for Rich?
