By: Chris Taylor

The UFC will be forced to make more changes to it’s upcoming 149 card, as news broke this weekend that Thiago Alves has been forced off with an undisclosed injury. UFC 149 has already been forced to make changes to it’s co-main event, as Thiago Silva pulled out of his scheduled bout with Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua due to a back injury.

Thiago Alves was scheduled to fight Siyar Bahadurzada in a welterweight bout on July 21st in Calgary, Alberta. No replacement opponent has been named for Siyar at this time. Alves was looking to rebound from the submission loss he suffered to Martin Kampmann back at UFC on FX 2.  A fight that saw Thiago control the action for the better part of three rounds, before falling victim to Kampmann’s choke. Thiago Alves is 2-4 in his past 6 fights.

The main event of UFC 149 will feature Jose Aldo defending his featherweight title against Erik ‘New Breed’ Koch.

    All the fighter pull-outs because of ‘injuries’ are all because of the UFC’s health plan they started not too long ago. Look it up.
