UFC lightweight Matt Wiman (10-5 MMA, 4-3 UFC) will have to put on hold his attempt to break back into the win column; a knee injury has forced the 25-year-old out of a proposed contest at UFC 103.

Wiman was expected to face Rafael dos Anjos (11-4 MMA, 0-2 UFC) at the Sept. 19 event, but MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) has learned "The Ultimate Fighter 5" contestant has bowed out of the event.

Headlined by a rematch between Dan Henderson and Rich Franklin, UFC 103 takes place at the American Airlines Center in Dallas.

I like Emerson to beat Dos Anjos, hopefully another exciting fight for dos anjos though.

I like dos Anjos in this fight. He has looked good in losses to Stephens (except for receiving an uppercut that would have sent him down on to the spikes in The Pit stage of MK) and especially Griffin. I think he has a great shot against Emerson.
