Earlier this week it was revealed that UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez was forced out of his UFC 180 main event bout against Fabricio Werdum. Prior to that, main-card fighter Joe Lauzon was forced out of his bout against Diego Sanchez with a knee injury, leaving his opponent, Diego Sanchez without an opponent.
Now it has been revealed by Sanchez himself, that he won’t need a replacement for the event, because he too injured his knee!
