Urijah Faber has suffered an undisclosed injury and will no longer face Masanori Kanehara when the UFC heads to Japan on Sept. 20.

Well, at least this fight won't be a complete blowout like the original Faber matchup.

I agree with all above, better logical fight, save Faber for a better opponent and card. Cacares creates an interesting matchup for Kanehara. A totally different style from Faber as well as the fact that Faber was a huge step up in competition for Kanehara where a win against Caceras makes him noticed but not on anyones radar. Whereas a loss to Bruce Leeroy really puts him down on the totem pole in the top ten picture.
