According to sources close to the situation, Nogueira has not healed completely from the surgery he underwent to repair a broken humerus suffered in his UFC 141 defeat to Frank Mir. Due to lingering effects from that injury, "Minotauro" will be unable to face Frenchman heavyweight Cheick Kongo at the event, which takes place at the Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary, Alberta.

Taking the Brazilian's place against Kongo will be former Louisiana State football standout Shawn Jordan. Though the pairing has not been officially announced by the UFC, Sherdog.com confirmed on Saturday with sources close to the Jackson's MMA representative that Jordan has accepted the bout.

I think the Nogeuira brothers have now pulled out of 6 of their last 10 combined. I know it's at least 5.

Well, this is disappointing.

Is 2012 the new 'year of the injuries'?

Big Nog is still recuperating from having his upper arm broken in the most savage submission ever? I'm shocked

I don't even know why this fight was booked, that wasn't even a year ago.

I agree. Nog is a freak of nature and I'm sure he heals fast but lets face it, he is no spring chicken and that was a brutal break. Give the guy time to let it heal correctly and to 100%. I'm sure Big Nog wants back in the action as bad as anyone but you gotta take it slow with an injury like that.

Whew! (wipes off forehead in relief)

For a minute there, after reading the title, I thought Nog might have gotten hit by a bus......

If that card takes any more injuries they may have to resort to having one of the Calgary Flames step in.

Maybe fighters should stop training for fights, it seems to be dangerous for their health and our entertainment.
