UFCjunkie.com-sponsored fighter Sean Salmon (9-2 MMA, 0-1 UFC) has a new opponent for next weekend’s UFC 71 event. Eric “Ravishing Red” Schafer has been scratched from the event with a broken rib, and Alan Belcher (9-3 MMA, 1-2 UFC) will fight in his place.

I had Salmon over Schafer, and I certainly have Salmon over Belcher.

"Belcher, who will move up a weight class for the light-heavyweight UFC 71 fight, will have just seven weeks of recovery and training time between the two events."

Now that you mention it, Salmon probably should drop to 185lbs. He looks pretty doughy at 205lbs. and the competition is arguably easier at 185lbs.

But this is at 205lbs., so...so much for that.
