Rumor is Tito will now be fighting on this card. Take it for whats it's worth, but it's coming from someone with direct contact to the UFC.

That would be great news.....I know he wanted to take a little more time off...but if he feels he ready that would be awesome....who would he fight......Jardine??? ......I know the fight the UFC wants is Shogun vs Tito but that wouldent be till Feb or March.

Man, that would suck. We go from a middleweight war sure to have some vicious GnP in it to a snoozefest of a fence clinch and sprawl war if Tito steps in. Honestly, who could you have Tito fight that would make for as interesting of a matchup?

The UFC deserves this........they make the entire MMA world wait 9 months for a title defense and then Serra gets hurt during this insane amount of time!

So basically the remaining TUF shows mean squat.....

What a joke!

As a sufferer of a herniated disc myself I can tell you it is crippling. Hell he may never fight again without surgery.

But I am terribly dissappointed this fight didn't happen. Hughes wanted one last hurrah and didn't get a chance at it.

I find it amusing to read posts by GSP's fans. It's called karma baby! How many times has GSP been injured and pushed back fights? So now, GSP is going to have to wait longer for a title shot. Don't get me wrong, I want to see GSP fight ASAP too, as he is one of the most exciting.

ufc might deserve this but we dont and gsp doesnt either, this is one big headache for dana and ufc...

if in some off chance serra can fight and he loses many will blame his injury for that.

they wont let hughes and gsp fight unless one of them all ready has the belt. i would bet all my money on that.

Fitch, cant take the fight. Karo, broken hand, Kos, just got destroyed by gsp, Diego, just lost to fitch and might be dropping weight anyways,

i know it sucks but i would rather have them push the fight back a month or two, maybe add it too the super bowl card that would be huge.

i was really looking forward to this fight.
this is horrible horrible news
