January 3, 2012 2:41 pm by bjpenn.com staff Leave your thoughts

Dustin Poirier cannot seem to catch a break.

His latest replacement opponent, Ricardo Lamas, has been forced out of their scheduled UFC 143 bout with an undisclosed injury.

UFC officials announced the change in card just moments ago.

No replacement has been named at this point, but a search is underway for Poirier, who was originally scheduled to fight Erik Koch before Koch was injured and replaced by the now injured Lamas.

UFC 143 is set to take place at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas on Super Bowl weekend. Georges St. Pierre was originally scheduled to headline the event against the newest title challenger Nick Diaz, however an injury forced him off the card and Diaz will now face Carlos Condit for the UFC’s interim welterweight title.
