According to a report from VERSUS.com, a hand injury has forced Nunes to withdraw from the event, and a replacement will not be sought at such a late date.

A disappointed Swanson, who thought the news was a cruel April Fool's joke, told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) he's making the best of the situation by gaining a new appreciation for deep dish pizza.

If I'm in Chi-town this weekend I hit every deep dish pizza parlor I can and try to catch him.

I never had real deep dish pizza but something close and it was good.

Sucks though, no paycheck for him. But theres always pizza mmm.

He'll get a paycheck. WEC apparently is going to pay him at least what his fight purse (to show) would've been. That probably will be in the $10-20K range.

Is that standard practice? either way classy move by the WEC to pay him anyways.
