danawhite: Lavar Johnson is out of the FOX prelims with a pulled groin. He was fighting Brendan Shcaub.

I'm going to this card so I especially hate to see this.

Man, I shouldn't have made that post on the last page...I jinxed it.

Fortunately this card is so stacked it could lose a couple fights and it's still the most stacked card of the year.

Yeah, that is kind of the one thing that seperates MMA (and specifically the UFC format) from other sports. How do they handle it, though? Look at Bellator - injuries and terrible decisions by refs/judges completely screw up the process and champions hardly ever end up fighting. And if you get screwed by a judge or a ref you have to wait for around a freaking year to get another chance to try to win a tournament and fight the champion again.

It's just a weird thing for an MMA promotion to deal with, so they ultimately make fights based on 3 factors: Who is the most accomplished/competitive fighter worthy of a title shot, who is healthy and ready to fight, and who do the fans want to see?
There needs to be a rule for instant replay, with the ability to go into a sudden death round in the event of a false stoppage or something along those lines.

The UFC needs to have the ability adjust the outcome of a fight depending on the circumstances.
Damn....lost another one.

Sucks for Mike. This was a HUGE hometown show for him.

I'm pretty stoked that the main card in completely intact. The only missing fight that made me go fuuuuuuuck was Johnson-Schaub, but I can deal with that.

I would't be surprised if some of these idiots are still training, and could hurt themselves this week.

Really hope not. Most fighters stop a week out to peak on time. I know Bendo stopped and it sounds like BJ arrived in Seattle today.

I miss watching BJ fight, but I have a feeling Rory is going to Diaz him.

We'll see. He is ripped for this fight like I've never even seen him (at either LW or WW). He might look like he did against Fitch in the first round where HE was taking down Fitch. That was crazy.

Either way I expect a great fight.

Barao needs to defend that title asap, division has been way too stagnant.

Agreed. Barao vs Mcdonald need to be booked ASAP. I see as a terrific Fuel or FX card main event.
