Representin' The MA's
Although the exact reason for the change couldn't be disclosed, Jason Reinhardt is now off WEC 51 due to failing his pre-fight medical exam, possibly due to a vision problem. He was to have faced debuting Chinese fighter Zhang Tie Quan. Pablo Garza, who competed on the current 12th season of The Ultimate Fighter but lost early to Michael Johnson, is the short-notice replacement.
Update: The reason is because Reinhardt's contact lens prescription is too heavy. “We were informed Thursday by the WEC that Jason's contact lens prescription was too heavy,” said Justin Reinhardt, Jason's brother and PR agent. “The State of Colorado does not allow a fighter to wear contact lenses in competition and therefore would not pass Jason to fight without his contacts. He has fought 11 years including UFC 78 with his contacts.”
