Eric Schafer (11-3-2 MMA, 3-2 UFC) has suffered an injury and has been forced to pull out of The Ultimate Fighter 9 Finale, which takes place next month in Las Vegas.

A source close to Schafer told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) the light heavyweight suffered a rib injury while preparing for the June 20 fight.

Stepping in as a replacement and scheduled to fight Tomasz Drwal (15-2 MMA, 1-1 UFC) is Mike Ciesnolevicz (17-3 MMA, 1-0 UFC), according to the The Times of Northwest Indiana.

unfortunate the recent amout of injuries, sad to hear that Schafer is out, but Mike Ciesnolevicz is a good replacement and like I thought "Red" was gonna do should submit Drwal.

Agreed. Drwal is a beast. A little polish, and he could be a contender.

Drwal I think should win this, but I could see Mike pulling out a sub.
