Georges St-Pierre's misfortune is a gain for Dustin Jacoby Brad Tavares.

The middleweights, who had been relegated to the Facebook-streamed preliminary card for next week's UFC 137 event, have been promoted the pay-per-view main card, UFC officials today confirmed with MMAjunkie.com.

A PPV slot opened when an injured St-Pierre was forced out of UFC 137's championship headliner with Carlos Condit.

Cerrone/Siver have deserved a spot on the main card from the beginning, but I understand they want fans to tune in for the Spike prelims, and if they aren't taking from Spike then I would prefer Curran/Jorgensen.

cowboy and siver is a great prelim

Jorgensen / Curran should be bumped up.

Obvs ill be watching every fight on that card from prelim to main event so it doesn't matter to me but I think fans that just watch the main card deserve Curran/Jorgenson who are very close to top contenders and it would just make sense but like I said doesn't matter to me either way

This. Jacoby vs. Tavares has no business being on the main card. I was confused at why it was the prelims headliner, let alone this. Definitely should have went to Curran/Jorgensen.

It is odd to see this picked for the main card, but nothing can really be changed on the spike prelims b/c of ads/promos that they probably have already done.

They probably want to keep Jorgensen/Curran on the prelims for the same reason they want Cerrone/Siver on Spike, to make sure there's at least one fight to make fans tune in.
