    Hope they find a replacement of equal value, cause if they get a random journeyman to fill the roll Uriah will destroy him. But that doesn't teach us anything, I'd like to know how he fairs against mid to top tier competition being well prepared and 100%. Guys a beast when he's ON.

    That sucks for Hall, He was on Sonnens podcast a few days ago where he was saying hes been looking forward to this rematch since TUF. Hes gotta be pissed right now.

    Philippou already beat him anyway, probably would have done it again, Uriah should fight Bisping next.

    Fuck I was really looking forward to this fight, I wish bisping would take it but I'm not sure he'd be willing specially on such a short notice, where's sonnen when you need him?

    That works! Poor Samman is probably in the middle of an injury though.

    Did you hear about his dog? His dog was essentially his best friend, got him through the injuries and death of his girlfriend. Then, after he gets home from the Gordon fight, he has to put the dog down because he was really sick.

    I read that and teared up.

    It'll be someone random I'm guessing. The UFC loves to bring in outside untested talent because they are willing to even on a days notice because they usually get a contract out of it. Hall via spinning kick of doom

    If they want a good scrap bring in Clint Hester

    If they want a brutal knockout then let Hall kick Cathal Pendred's head into the nosebleed section

    I'm with this. Being Connor on the main card too. Cathal head is so big though, it'll be the easiest target

    That's fucking awful. I hope samman wins a championship one day for all his troubles.

    On topic, I'd like to see either samman, sexyama, or even bisping (if he could make it in time) take this fight.

    Edit: was just reminded about hester, that would be a very Explosive match up.

    What's Cedenblad up too? Figured he would end up on the Sweden card. He'd bring a fight. As would Roger Narvaez or Krzysztof Jotko.
