A broken arm has forced Jorge Rivera out of his UFC 118 bout with fellow middleweight Alessio Sakara. Rivera first announced the news via his Facebook page, though UFC officials have not removed the bout from the official fight card. With ample time, UFC officials likely will search for a replacement, though without Rivera (a cast member on "The Ultimate Fighter 4"), the bout potentially could lose its spot on Spike TV's "UFC Prelims" broadcast. Rivera hopes to return in September or October.

UPDATE: The replacement is Gerald Harris.

Noooooo. I was looking forward to this fight so much. Wish all the best for Jorge in his recovery.

Yeah I really wanted to see that fight but hopefully UFC gets another striker to replace Rivera against Sakara.

I thought Rivera had a good shot hear and this does suck. If Leben hadn't already beaten him Id say why not throw him in. Cote could be a good option.

Was pulling for Rivera in this fight, major bummer, hopefully the UFC will set this match up for later on.

Damn!! this sucks. Jorge seemed to be on another tear. He fights with so much emotion it's hard not to like the guy. Fighting right after losing his daughter in his last fight ......I think?

You'll have to settle for Gerald Harris.
