After losing opponent Thiago Silva (14-2 MMA, 5-2 UFC) to a rescheduling, light heavyweight Igor Pokrajac (24-8 MMA, 3-3 UFC) now will fight replacement Fabio Maldonado (18-4 MMA, 1-1 UFC) at May's UFC on FUEL TV 3 event.

Maldonado recently announced the fight.

UFC on FUEL TV 3 takes play May 15 at the Patriot Center in Fairfax, Va., and features a No. 1 contender's bout between featherweights Dustin Poirier and Chan Sung Jung.

The event's main card airs live on FUEL TV, and Facebook is expected to stream the preliminary card. It's not clear where Pokrajac vs. Maldonado will end up on the card.

It really took a hit with losing Thiago Silva, should still be entertaining but Silva was some much needed name value. Esspecially coming off that beat down of Vera (tainted or not).

Names make $$$ not necessarily quality fights. From the looks of it, this should be a pretty exciting card despite lack of star power. I think Maldonado should take this with a rd 1 t/ko

This will be a war for as long as it lasts.

Probably give the edge to Maldonado but, very close fight
