Friday was not a good day for UFC 149 … or fighters named Thiago. Shortly after is was revealed a bad back forced Thiago Silva out of the July 21st event, MMAWeekly reports welterweight Thiago Alves (Pictured) will now have to bow out of the show with an undisclosed injury. Alves was slated to face Siyar Bahadurzada inside Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The organization is currently scouring its roster for a suitable replacement. Bahadurzada made quite the splash in his big league debut at “UFC on FUEL TV 2″ by putting Paulo Thiago to sleep in just 42 seconds. The ‘Knockout of the Night’ performance marked the welterweight’s seventh consecutive victory. Alves was originally scheduled to face Yoshihiro Akiyama in the event, but “Sexyama” withdrew with an injury. The “Pitbull” was looking to rebound from a disappointing submission loss to Martin Kampmann. Here is the card’s dwindling roster:
Preliminary Card: 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: Mauricio “Shogun” Rua vs. TBD Siyar Bahadurzada vs. TBD Michael Bisping vs. Tim Boetsch Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira vs. Cheick Kongo Erik Koch vs. Jose Aldo (UFC featherweight champion)
