UFC middleweight Alessio Sakara released a statement to MMA Fighting earlier today regarding his withdrawal from UFC 133 on August 6th. He had been scheduled to fight Jorge Rivera, but suffered a knee injury and was replaced in the bout by Constantinos Philippou. Here's what he had to say:

"I tried to ignore the pain until now, thinking I had just sprained the knee," he said. "I kept training without using my legs. I wanted to get to the fight in a good condition somehow, but the MRI diagnosed that I broke my ligaments, and now I can't fight!"

What was it a torn ACL, yeah you can't fight.

I think some guys have pulled out with lesser injuries.

How many times have these two been slated to fight but one of them got hurt. UFC might as well scrap it and never have them fight, cuz someone is bound to get injured. Kinda crazy how it continues to happen.
