If Alessio Sakara is going to fight at UFC on Versus 3, it will be against a third opponent, since he was first slotted on the March 3 card. Renzo Gracie fighter Rafael Natal has been forced off the UFC on Versus 3 card against Sakara due to a knee injury suffered in training. No timetable set for his return. Natal himself was an injury replacement for Sakara's original foe, Maiquel Falcao. No word yet on yet another possible replacement.

Update: Chris Weidman is the expected replacement. Not yet final though.

Yeah, seems that he just can't get a fight anymore whether it's because of getting injured, an opponent getting injured or some other circumstances.

I feel sorry for the guy. He just can't seem to catch a break.

According to Junkie, Chris Weidman is expected to be the replacement, but it's not yet official.
