Matt Veach is now off UFC 102 due to a back injury. Apparently it was an injury he suffered back as a collegiate wrestler and re-aggravated it recently. He was to have faced Evan Dunham. Marcus Aurelio, who was cut after 2 losses in a row left him at 2-3 in UFC, will return to the promotion as the replacement. Aurelio has gone 2-0 since leaving UFC.

Veach was going to get KO'd anyway, this way we can see if Dunham is ready for top competition or if Marcus is ready to fight top guys again. I see a submission victory for Maximus late in the 1st or early 2nd, just too slick on the ground and too early in Dunham's career imo.

If nobody else in his career could, then Dunham wont.

I though Dunham was a shoe in to beat Veach but with Maximus as the replacement I gotta go with my man Aurelio by Sub in the second o unanimous decision.

True enough. He's only lost decisions so I guess it is...

Maximums via Armbar

or Dunham Split Decision

I think Marcus submits Dunham in the first.

Sweet. Now hopefully I will get an underdog bonus for picking Dunham.
