    SIR

    Pairing to be left intact and simply delayed to Toronto PPV event, which makes sense.

    Brazilian Portuguese to English translation

    Cara de Sapato gets hurt and fights with Elias Theodorou is delayed for UFC 231

    UFC São Paulo continues to suffer with several unforeseen events for the card. Having lost the injured Glover Teixeira and Ketlen Vieira and the move from Neil Magny to UFC Buenos Aires, it was reported by MMAFighting.com that Antonio Cara de Sapato was injured and is out of the fight he would do against Elias Theodorou at UFC Fight Night 137 But according to exclusive information from MMA Brazil, the UFC moved fast and re-marked the UFC 231 clash that will take place on December 8 at the Scotiabank Arena in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

    Currently ranked 11th among middleweights, Cara de Sapato would face Derek Brunson at UFC 227, but an injury to the opponent forced the cancellation of the bout and now an injury to the pectoral muscle prevented the fighter from taking part in the event to be held in Sao Paulo. Against Elias, he seeks his sixth consecutive victory, beating names like Tim Boetsch and Jack Marshman, in order to enter the top 10.

    Theodorou tries for his third straight victory. Champion of The Ultimate Fighter: Nations, lost to Brad Tavares in July 2017, but then won victories over Dan Kelly and Trevor Smith in decisions that made him 14th in rankings.

    UFC 231 will be held December 8 at the Scotiabank Arena in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Check the expected card for the event:

    UFC 231

    Featherweight belt: Max Holloway (c) vs. Brian Ortega (not official)
    Middleweight: Antônio Cara de Sapato Vs. Elias Theodorou
    Lightweight: Gilbert Durinho Vs. Olivier Aubin-Mercier
    Welterweight: Dhiego Lima vs. Chad Laprise

    Sucks for the sao paolo card. That card is shit.

    UFC 231 is looking fantastic. Elias gets a bad rap. This will be a fun fight.

    He’s a grinder that has hardly any athleticism. I imagine being choked by him feels like wearing a tight turtle neck sweater

    That's why the pairing with Shoeface makes sense.

    Every time I see Theodorou at my gym the dude is talking on the phone more than he’s training.
    No wonder his striking technique sucks balls.
    Nice hair though
