The "Stun Gun" has been temporarily disabled-Dong Hun Kim is now off UFC 120 due to an undisclosed injury. He was to have faced John Hathaway. Mike Pyle has been tapped as the replacement-verbal agreements are in place, paperwork pending.

This should be an interesting fight. Pyle does have a win over Jon Fitch.

Yea.......8 years ago. I'd pick Fitch probably 10 out of 10 times now a days against Pyle

I think Hathaway got a little lucky here. I think Kim would have gave him his first loss. With the change in opponent though, I think i'll be picking him to win a decision.

Yeah hathaway should have a better advantage in the standup and the wrestling/control of this fight with the new opponent in pyle.

Damnit!! I like watching Dong much more than Pyle.....Hathaway is a beast too, I thought it was going to be a barn buner...now I'm not that hyped at all.

I think Sanchez didnt look as good as he usually does. Hathaway looked great, this fight is interesting because if Hathawy takes Pyle down, Pyle is good off his back, and looks good standing also.

Hathaway vs Sanchez was an awesome idea when it happened, Hathaway against Kim made sense ...Hathaway against Pyle??? Hathaway 1st rd?
