Apparently UFC has some concerns about Chris Wilson, who is supposed to fight Brock larson Saturday at UFC 98. The concerns aren't clear, but UFC has signed Mike Pyle to a contract and he's been told to be ready to fight Saturday as an "insurance policy".

Pyle would be a much much stronger test than Wilson IMO for Larson.

Im kinda suprised that pyle would be insurance. Having fought for affliction, but hopefully he gets some fights in the UFC.

I never knew Chris Wilson had left TEAM QUEST to go train with Nog. Can anybody tell me how long ago this happened?

maybe wilson is suffering from PTSD after the robbery. what ever the reason hope he and his family are OK.

Pyle is a good fighter. If Wilson isn't okay this will be a very good fight.

I never really dis-liked Wilson. I mostly had issues with Team Quest as a whole camp more than a problem with individual fighters from there. I don't know how long ago he switched his training to fight under NOG's tutelage, but I also hope he is okay and wish him well.

Pyle is a heck of a fighter that has been waiting to break out into mainstream for such a long time. I also wish him well.
