The deck just keeps shuffling.

With Alessio Sakara forced out of August's UFC 133 event, Constantinos Phillippou (7-2 MMA, 0-1 UFC) has been pulled from a preliminary card bout with Rafael "Sapo" Natal (12-3-1 MMA, 0-1-1 UFC) and will now face Jorge Rivera (19-8 MMA, 7-6 UFC) on the evening's pay-per-view broadcast.

Sakara just can't catch a break when it comes to injuries and fight changes.

Rivera either axes him early or underestimates Costa's power.

Goin with Rivera, the guy deserves a win bonus for having a guy pull out of a fight 3 times.

Phillipou is probably a tougher fight than Sakara in that he's a better wrestler and I'm interested to see how Rivera rebounds after his his beatdown from Bisping.
