UFC 133 Curse Continues: Lil' Nog is out of the fight against Rich Franklin

UFC 133 mayhem continues.

After Phil Davis and Vladimir Matyushenko pulled out of their August 6th bouts due to an injury, it looks like MMA gods are yet to finish the reconstruction of UFC 133 fight card. Dana White confirmed via Twitter (earlier reported by TATAME.com) that the PRIDE veteran Antonio Rogerio Nogueira is out of his main card bout against Rich “Ace” Franklin.

According to White, UFC are already seeking for replacement. Fighters such like Krzysztof Soszynski, Ryan Bader and Brandon “The Truth” Vera all look like potential opponents for Rich Franklin, who will look to bounce back from Unanimous Decision loss against Forrest Griffin at UFC 126.

    This is getting to be ridiculous. I’m starting to think Dana’s doing this on purpose to troll the MMA community for hating on him after what happened to Nate Marquardt.

    Dana sign Mousasi. I mean he is coming off a knockout victory from this weekends fight at DREAM and looks physically unscaved.

    This could be a nice bounce back for Bader too.
