Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) was forced to scratch the upcoming middleweight showdown between Hector Lombard and Brad Tavares, as a result of injuries suffered by both combatants.

MMA Junkie reported the change on Tuesday.

The 185-pound showdown — serving as “Showeather’s” return to the middleweight division following a disastrous run at 170 pounds — was slotted for UFC on FOX 23, taking place Sat., Jan. 28, 2017 inside Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado.

Too bad, so sad, bye bye.

Fortunately for the world’s leading mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion (and ticket holders), the bout has already been replaced by middleweight up-and comers Alessio Di Chirico and Eric Spicely.

Fun.

UFC on FOX 23 will feature a main event between top-ranked women’s bantamweight contenders, Julianna Pena vs. Valentina Shevchenko, as well as a fantastic 135-pound scrap between Raphael Assuncao vs. Aljamain Sterling.


I'm not the best… I just believe that I can do things that people think are impossible.


And at least I am no former Junkie that is all that matters.

He's fighting fixed fights, that's why the UFC is paying him so much in comparison to others. Similar deal to when Brock fought Cain, Overeem and Hunt but he accidentally beat Hunt
