It looks like the rematch will have to wait.

Both James Irvin and Houston Alexander won't be able to fight at Shark Fights 14, though for very different reasons.

Irvin has been pulled from the fight following an alleged positive test for steroids. Alexander has sustained an undisclosed injury in training that has ousted him, too, from the rematch.

Bummer, I was kinda looking forward to this fight. If the drug test is conclusive, then Irvin just killed the 0.001% that he had of getting back into the UFC.
