    "The change comes as a result of Thatch being unable to receive clearance to fight from the Pennsylvania State Athletic Commission for using a “medication permitted under the UFC/USADA, WADA and Nevada State Athletic Commission anti-doping rules,” according to a statement released by the Las Vegas-based promotion on Friday night. The medication Thatch was using was not specified."

    “The Colorado fighter and his team have been in communication with the UFC and USADA throughout this process, and the required paperwork for licensing in Nevada has been filed,” the statement read."

    Meanwhile, Thatch-Bahadurzada joins a UFC 196 card that is headlined by a lightweight title tilt between Rafael dos Anjos and Conor McGregor. The March 5 event takes place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas and will also see Holly Holm defend her bantamweight strap against Miesha Tate in the co-feature.

    They know they are not suppose to have anything in their system the UFC needs a zero tolerance policy so anybody caught gets cut this way they would quit screwing these cards up.

    Move Erosa to the Cowboy card nobody wants to see anybody from TUF22 they were all terrible.

    They're going to screw the prelims for 196 up immensely.

    Yeah, aside from Hall and Saul, TUF 22 was a pretty weak season.

    It's pretty evident that Ryan Hall is as one-dimensional as they come, Saul was the only good fighter on the show.

    Who said one prelim? 194 & 189 prelims were far better than the ones for 196.

    They need a couple of fringe contenders where the fight has at least a little significance.

    Ufc 189 prelims
    Brown vs Means
    Garcia vs Swick
    Howard vs Pendred
    Garbrandt vs Briones

    Ufc 196
    Diego vs Jim Miller
    Thatch vs Siyar
    Latifi vs Villante
    Silva vs Taleb

    There is no appreciable difference in prelim cards.

    No love is a prospect a lot of people have their eye on, Matt Brown is a fringe contender plus him & Means are always in good fights. I can't remember Garcia vs. Swick. Pendred was there because they wanted more Irish fighters on the card probably.

    You shouldn't have purposely excluded the 194 prelims to fit your argument.

    194 prelims dumps on 196, Sanchez vs. Miller is the FP prelims which I can appreciate, Latifi vs. Villante is a solid fight. Thatch is neither here nor there. Erick Silva is just severely overrated.


    I still stand by my argument which is 189 & 194 prelims are better than 196, 194 by far.
