Manny Gamburyan's injury woes continue, and he has been forced out of May's UFC on FX 8 event. In his place steps Nik Lentz (23-5-2 MMA, 7-2-1), who now meets Brazilian Hacran Dias (21-1-1 MMA, 1-0 UFC).

UFC officials today announced the switch...

Personally I still think Dias gets the win in this one.

should be a closer match up than Gambo.
I think Lentz has a good shot at winning this one. He's looked very good at FW and has just as good wrestling as Dias imo. If the wrestling cancels each other out this could be a close one.

Dias has some good wrestling chops for a non American and is a pretty big fw

This will be a sweet fight. Lentz looked pretty damn good with that ass whooping he handed Diego Nunes. Dias impressed me against Alcantara as well....

Well, so much for the Lentz train. Pretty sure it just ran out of track...

Hasn't Gamby pulled out of his last 2 fights now? I hope he hasn't come down with a case of the Hardy wolf heart.

Too soon?
