The injury bug strikes again as Luiz Cane has been scratched from his scheduled middleweight clash with Yuhsin Okami at UFC 150.
UFC officials announced on Monday that fellow Brazilian Rousimar Palhares will fill the void left by Cane to take on Okami at the August 11th event.
Palhares and Okami will both be looking to get back on the winning track after setbacks in their most recent bouts. Submission specialist Palhares (14-4) saw his three fight winning streak come to an end when he suffered a first round technical knockout loss to Alan Belcher at UFC on Fox 3. Okami, a former middleweight title challenger, appeared to be on his way to a victory until a tremendous third round comeback by Tim Boetsch ended his night at UFC 144.
UFC 150 takes place from the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado. The event is headlined by a lightweight title bout between champion Ben Henderson and former champion Frankie Edgar.
