An ailing Antonio Rogerio Nogueira (21-5 MMA, 4-2 UFC) has been forced to withdraw from this month's UFC 161 event, and UFC officials are currently seeking a replacement opponent for Mauricio "Shogun" Rua (21-7 MMA, 5-5 UFC).

The scratch was first reported by GloboEsporte.com, and MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) has since confirmed the change with multiple sources close to the promotion.

GloboEsporte.com's report cited a herniated disc as the reason for the withdrawal. A timetable for his return was not immediately established.

I hope Glover fills in. Last fight was less than 3 mins. I think i remember seeing he got a 6 month medical suspension tho. Maybe just wishful thinking lol

My sources tell me that alot of names are being thrown around for a "replacement" for 'Injury Nog' - - luckily for Shogun, he only trains 2 weeks for a fight anyways..

This is 149 all over again.


Main event out
Lil nog
Vallie flagg
Tj walburger

Who's next.

Texeira is out with a hurt hand.

Best guess is Davis
Or they pull Ryan jimmo off his fight.

Maybe lattiffi. But I doubt it.

Lil Nog seems to be getting injured a lot more these days. This news really bums me out
