An undisclosed injury has forced welterweight Paulo Thiago (13-3, 3-3 UFC) to withdraw from a bout with Johny Hendricks (9-1 MMA, 4-1 UFC) at UFC on Versus 3.

A source close to the event told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that Hendricks may get another opponent or be shifted to another card. Hendricks' camp, Team Takedown, also confirmed the news via Twitter.

UFC on Versus 3 takes place March 3 at the KFC Yum! Center in Louisville, Ky., and its main card airs on Versus.

The news comes just six days after MMAjunkie.com reported that Thiago vs. Hendricks had verbally agreed to the bout, which was targeted for the event's preliminary card. UFC executives officially announced the fight a few days later...

I'm guessing you meant Matt, and that might be a possibility.

I hate to see Thiago injured. But, please, please, PLEASE replace him with Mike Swick! This will be a tough comeback fight for him, but I'd love to see him on the main card.
