Heavyweight Geronimo dos Santos (31-14 MMA, 0-0 UFC) has been forced out of next week's UFC 153 event in Rio de Janeiro.

UFC officials today announced the scratch but did not reveal the reason for his removal.

That leaves Gabriel Gonzaga (13-6 MMA, 8-5 UFC) without an opponent for the card, but UFC officials did not announce whether a replacement fighter would be sought on such short notice.

Gonzaga could now potentially serve as a replacement opponent for Daniel Cormier at November's Strikeforce event, but Zuffa officials have yet to make an announcement for their intentions with "Napao."

I hope they find a replacement for Gonzaga to face. There has to be a heavy weight out there willing to take the fight

Here is the answer for the Cormier dilemna. Cormier vs. Gonzaga in Strikeforce. The timing works out perfectly.

if Struve is able to possibly take this fight on short notice (and WIN ) he'd be on the fast track to a title shot 4 sure

Wouldn't mind to se Cormier/Gonzaga just because I want Cormier to get that Strikeforce contrct shit over with and GG is a solid gatekeeper. Or put in Kongo or Rothwell or someone like that.

Cormier/Gonzaga. Wouldn't mind seeing this. Good test to see where Cormier will stack up when he does come over

This.. and why not? he left Zuffa on a good note and all other HW's are held up.

Arlovski could beat a lot of those lower and mid tier guys in zuffa.

A week notice. I bet they scratch the fight.
Meat head would take the fight but doubt Ufc gives it to him

Maybe Shawn Jordan
