Ultimate Fighter season 12 contestant Cody McKenzie has been forced out of his UFC 130 fight with an injury, and Brazilian Gleison Tibau is likely to step in and replace him in facing veteran Bart Palaszewski.

The UFC confirmed that Tibau has verbally agreed to the bout.

McKenzie (12-1) has split his two fights in the UFC octagon, winning his debut with his trademark guillotine choke variation before dropping his most recent fight in a technical submission to Yves Edwards.

I'm thinking Tibau will rag doll him. Palaszewski is fun to watch, but I doubt he will be able to survive against the UFC Lightweights like Tibau, especially with size and strength advantage.

I was starting to think Bart and Cody fought at 145, because I think compared to Tibau they are going to look small.

This sucks, I was hoping for Bartimus to give Cody the axe from the UFC. Bart's going to have a tough time with Tibau.

Damn talk about going from a very winnable fight for Bart to about to catch a beatdown haha. I think he won't go down without a fight but I really think Gleison is just going to out muscle him.

Bart is going to get destroyed....Gleison has the chin and other than in pure boxing aspect has more skills everywhere this fight can and will take place. I actually thought Bart was at 145 as well....he just doesn't have the ground skills (IMO) to be successful in the UFC.

Joke replacement? McKenzie doesnt belong in the UFC in the first place...

Tibau is leaps and bounds better than McKenzie.
