Veteran Javier Vazquez (13-3 MMA, 0-1 UFC) will replace injured Mark Hominick (16-8 MMA, 0-2 WEC) and meet promotional newcomer Deividas Taurosevicius (10-3 MMA, 0-0 WEC) at next month's WEC 43 event.
MMAjunkie.com's John Morgan broke news of the fight change on his Dallas Morning News MMA blog today.
The nature of Hominick's injury was not disclosed. Bout agreements are expected to be finalized today.
WEC 43, originally scheduled for Sept. 2 in Youngstown, Ohio, now takes place Oct. 18 at the 18,000-seat AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas. Benson Henderon and Donald Cerrone fight for a WEC interim lightweight title in the night's main event.

wow, this fight just got a whole lot more interesting, hominick was screwed against deiviadas tbh, i still favor deiviadas but at least it makes the card that mujch more exciting.

Definately, Taurosevicis was going to tear Mark up on the ground, Vazquez offers a lot stiffer challenge there. Either way I am still picking and betting on Tauosevicius.
