I'm legitametely surprised they don't have a backup plan whenever they book Alves, given his injury history.
Pittsburgh? Short notice? We know a certain Spaniard with a 'fro who's looking for redemption haha
Cut him. Cut McCall. Cut Khabib. Cut De Randamie. Send a message to future wannabe pullout merchants
Pay Iaquinta. No cut, real heat, let em bang bro
I'd say raging Al, but Perry and his management already ducked Al
Cerrone or Olivera for that matter
Both would blast Perry and feed JBG
Who would make a good last minute replacement? Only 3 days notice is tough, but I'm sure someone is up for the challenge.
My vote is for Ragin' Al Iaquinta.
Lucky Platinium dodged a bullet.
Ragin' Al would be sweet
The UFC is currently seeking a welterweight fighter willing to take on a rising contender on short notice.
MMAjunkie today confirmed with promotion officials that Thiago Alves (22-11 MMA, 14-8 UFC) has been forced to withdraw from Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 116 co-headliner, and Mike Perry (10-1 MMA, 3-1 UFC) is in need of a new opponent.
Alves’ representatives weren’t immediately available for comment or details on the fighter’s withdrawal.
Featuring a middleweight matchup between former UFC champ Luke Rockhold (15-3 MMA, 5-2 UFC) and former dual-division WSOF title holder David Branch (21-3 MMA, 3-2 UFC), UFC Fight Night 116 takes place Saturday at PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh, and it airs on FS1 following an early prelim on UFC Fight Pass.
Alves vs. Perry had second billing on the card.
Perry defeated him before they even stepped in the octagon.
Perry Dodged a Bullet.
WME agrees to terms to purchase the UFC from Fertita Brothers.
How do you guys think this will work out for them, and the fans?
Ups... that great co-main event got screwed. No one will take that place on 3 days notice.
Alves too frail, I knew it was risky fight to sign
That's his official twitter... that was a quick turn around for sure if its true.
