Japanese striker Riki Fukuda (17-5 MMA, 0-1 UFC) has been forced out of a UFC 133 bout with fellow middleweight Rafael "Sapo" Natal (12-3-1 MMA, 0-1-1 UFC).

In a Twitter update, Fukuda said he suffered a left-knee injury in a recent car accident. He didn't give a timetable for his return.

UFC officials have not officially announced the withdrawal or a possible replacement opponent for Natal.

UFC 133 takes place at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia on Aug. 6. The night's main card airs on pay-per-view, though Fukuda vs. Natal was slated for the preliminary card.

Man, that's too bad. Hopefully it was a minor injury and he'll be back in the octagon soon. I was really looking forward to seeing him get some vengeance for getting screwed in the Nick Ring fight.

Broke his knee, I think he said. That's shitty for him.

That's unfortunate. Hope to see him return soon.
