Brazilian bantamweight Johnny Eduardo (25-9 MMA, 0-1 UFC) has suffered a shoulder injury and has been forced out of this month's UFC 139 fight with Michael McDonald (13-1 MMA, 2-0 UFC).

UFC officials today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) a replacement search is underway. Tatame first reported the scratch.

UFC 139 takes place Nov. 19 at HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif.

While the main card airs on pay-per-view, Eduardo vs. McDonald was slated for the portion of the preliminary card expected to stream on Facebook.
