Sources close to the fighter revealed today that Thiago Silva is now off UFC 117 due to an undisclosed injury. He was to have faced Tim Boetsch. No word yet on if UFC will be able to find a replacement in time, the event is only 11 days away.

Article

Update: Another back injury.

Already fought Boetsch a little over a year ago - they will probably bring in a newcomer for a replacement or maybe a UFC once cut Vet like Elliot Marshall.

They should probably see if Ricardo Arona could be signed, I know he wants to be in the UFC - maybe some cheaper alt. fights could be Chris Davis, or ATT Teammate Lew Polley (Or at least I think he is with ATT).

Sucks that he's injured, but I didn't like this fight for him anyways, as I think he'd run through boetsch easily. Hopefully when he comes back he'll be fighting a contender in a bout that's guarenteed to be televised, unlike this one.

I wouldn't expect any big name here to fight on the undercard. With only 11 days it won't surprise me if they scrap it all together.
