Ultimately, Scott Jorgensen gets his wish because his fight with Jeff Curran will now be on the main card for the pay-per-view at UFC 137 after an injury forced Brad Tavares off the card.

UFC officials announced on Friday that Tavares suffered an injury in training and newcomer Clifford Starks will step in to face Dustin Jacoby, but their fight will go back to the Facebook preliminary card.

Good for Jorgensen/Curran but it sucks that Tavares is injured.

I thought Jorgensen and Curran should have been on the main card from the start.

would have rather had this fight on the main card to begin with also. dont much care for tavares, and after jorgensen's KO in, I THINK, in his last fight. it was the one where he KO'd the guy from in his full guard. never seen that before.

Personally I think the Curran/Jorgenson fight should have been on the main card over the Tavares fight anyhow.

Agreed. This is a much more intriguing fight.

I do support the upgrade for jorgenson but wtf are these guys doing merely days away from huge fights. Gsp and now tavares...guess nobody ever heard of taper. Oh well at least it wasn't a frank shamrock injury incurred warmining up before the fight

Well, Curran gets part of his wish. All he has to do now is win.
