An undisclosed injury has forced Dave "Pee Wee" Herman out of a UFC 136 bout with Mike Russow, officials today announced.

As a result, a long-awaited rematch between featherweights Leonard Garcia and Nam Phan has taken its spot on the night's pay-per-view main card.

UFC 136 takes place Oct. 8 at Houston's Toyota Center.

Pettis/Stephens should be promoted to the main card, and Phan/Garcia to the Spike prelims.

Agreed. We get to see every fight now anyway, so I could care less who is on the main card and who is on the under card.

Suprised they scratched the bout.
Hunt would have taken the fight or even browne

Still a decent fight on the main card despite both coming off losses

I see Phan dominating Garcia in route to a decision loss.

The only thing I'm disappointed about is that I don't get to see Herman knock Russow out while smiling :P, like one of the guys above me said were gonna see every fight anyway who cares which fight is where

I read on Twitter today that Herman was scratched due to a failed drug test (THC) that he's disputing.

I'm confused...when did they start testing in the weeks/months leading up to a fight?

EDIT: Nevermind...I was thinking this fight was at 139, not 136. He was being tested by the AC for licensing.

I read Playground's interview of Phan and in one of Phan's responses he said something like, " I am not a main event kind of guy."

Good things are happening to Phan.

Exactly. We win either way. This card is ridiculous top to bottom. I can't wait.
