With new UFC Featherweight Champion Jose Aldo now out of a planned UFC 125 fight against Josh Grispi, Dustin Poirier has been tapped as the replacement for Aldo. Grispi will now risk his No. 1 contender status in the matchup, which additional sources have indicated will likely no longer serve as the evening's co-main event. The new bout's exact positioning on the UFC 125 card is uncertain at this time. Verbal agreements are in place for the fight, paperwork pending.

Funny that they didn't take grispi off the card as well

Anyways I got vera vs silva on main card

And spike prelims will be stephens vs davis
Brown vs nunes now

Sucks that ufc couldn't just add a main card fight
But now gomi vs guida will be co main event
Got no beef with that

I expect Nunes vs. Brown to be bumped to the main card.

The UFC will probably want to feature former WEC fighters as much as they can during the five or six months after the transition.
