Leonard Garcia's return to the UFC will have to wait. He was scheduled to face Tyler Toner at the TUF 12 Finale but is now off due to an unsiclosed injury suffered in training. Ian Loveland is the short-notice replacement. Loveland is 13-7 career but brings a 6-fight winning streak into UFC.

I think Garcia lucked out from being cut by UFC, after he would have lost to Toner.

There goes 13 points. Toner would have whooped his ass.

My feelings and thoughts are the same as Pookie and Twenty. I was so looking forward to Toner beating down Leonard.

It's not that Garcia is a bad fighter, it's just his style. Most of the ass kicking he's recieved is due to him wanting to brawl. Entertaining, yes. Wins towards keeping your spot on the roster, nooooo.

I was hoping that the first FW/BW fights on the UFC would have been BIG fights.....Faber vs Torres would have been good, and to see Jose Aldo as a first view to a new adience would have been prime as well......but what can you do, it's the fight game.
