"The Ultimate Fighter 15" winner Michael Chiesa (8-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC) will need a new opponent for his first post-"TUF" bout.

Lightweight opponent Rafaello Oliveira (15-5 MMA, 2-4 UFC) suffered a broken hand in training and has pulled out of their scheduled UFC on FOX 5 meeting.

Oliveira and Chiesa tweeted news of the injury, though UFC officials haven't formally removed it from the December card.

That kind of sucks. I'm not a fan of Oliveira though so hopefully they'll find a better replacement.

Lucky for Rafaello because my boy Chiesa was going to spank him
