It now appears that anyone who is a Thiago or facing Jon Fitch at UFC 107 is cursed. First Fitch's original opponent, Ricardo Almeida, was forced off due to injury and now word is that the replacement, Thiago Alves, is now off too. There are unconifirmed reports Alves has a torn PCL. Alves was to have faced Paulo Thiago initially before Almeida's withdrawal broke up the fight of the Thiagos. No word yet on a potential replacement to face Fitch.

2 quick updates, Junkie has updated their article:
Confirmation of injury-torn PCL.

Alves reluctantly agreed to withdraw after the injury report. Estimated return date: Early 2010. So based on that, a safe initial estimate on how long he's out is 3-4 months.
