UFC 149 has undergone quite the makeover in merely seven days. After watching featherweight king Jose Aldo pull out of the show’s featured attraction with an injury, the card’s co-main event has now made a swap.

According to Sherdog, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira’s (Pictured) broken right arm has not completely healed after Frank Mir snapped it in two this past December. The former heavyweight champion will have to withdraw from his scrap against Cheick Kongo, which has opened the door for Shawn Jordan to serve as substitute.

Kongo was upset by Mark Hunt at UFC 144 in February. The bout marked the 36-year-old’s first defeat since getting submitted by Mir in December 2009.

Jordan successfully made his big league debut by scoring a TKO victory over Oli Thompson at “UFC on FX 2” in March. It marked the former Strikeforce star’s fourth win in his past five outings.

No word if the tango between Kongo and Jordan will still receive second-to-top billing. It’s possible the middleweight shootout with Hector Lombard and Tim Boetsch could receive the promotion.

Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary, Alberta, Canada hosts the July 21st festivities.

Here is the card’s revised roster:

Preliminary Card:

Roland Delorme vs. TBD

Ryan Jimmo vs. Anthony Perosh

Mitch Clarke vs. Anton Kuivanen

Claude Patrick vs. James Head

Bryan Caraway vs. Mitch Gagnon

George Roop vs. Antonio Carvalho

Court McGee vs. Nick Ring

Main Card:

Siyar Bahadurzada vs. Chris Clements

Hector Lombard vs. Tim Boetsch

Shawn Jordan vs. Cheick Kongo

Urijah Faber vs. Renan Barao (For UFC interim bantamweight title)
