Drew Dober replaces injured Sergio Moraes – draws Sean Spencer for UFC debut at TUF 18 Finale
The injury bug has hit the TUF 18 Finale card – although a ready-made replacement was waiting in the wings. Drew Dober (14-4) will replace the injured Sergio Moraes and will now meet Sean Spencer (10-2) on the TUF 18 Finale card. Sources close to the event today told MMAOpinion.co.uk of the news, although the UFC have yet to officially confirm the fight at this point. MMAJunkie.com originally reported news of Moraes’ injury earlier this week. Moraes was initially scheduled to fight Zak Cummings before an injury put a spanner in the works. Spencer stepped up to take the fight but it now seems that an injury will stop the TUF Brazil competitor from competing on American soil for only the second time in his career.

Bisping - Hendricks will put him to sleep in one round with a left hook

Michael Bisping (No.4 ranked middleweight contender) - “I’m going with Hendricks to put him to sleep in one round with a left hook. Hendricks has the capabilities of stopping GSP’s takedowns and, quite honestly, it is going to be a murder on the feet. Hendricks hits too hard and he can take a hell of a shot himself. Hendricks’ left hook is the most dangerous weapon in the entire welterweight division, and it will win him the UFC championship on November 16. Also, I’m just not sure if GSP really wants to do this anymore. He is the best welterweight of all time, perhaps the best UFC fighter of all time, period.”

Fighters Forecast UFC 167 Upset
In July, at UFC 162, Chris Weidman scored one of the biggest upsets of all time when he knocked out Anderson Silva to win the UFC middleweight championship. Fans Octagonside at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas were stunned when a Weidman left hook laid out “The Spider” in the second round, but not everyone was surprised by the result. Now, some of the sport’s best athletes are predicting another long championship reign to end when welterweight king Georges St-Pierre collides with No.1 contender Johny Hendricks this Saturday. UFC 167's main event is the most eagerly-anticipated UFC welterweight title fight in years, with Las Vegas oddsmakers giving the Ada, Oklahoma-born Hendricks the best shot to take the title away from “GSP” in years. The No.1 ranked challenger is currently listed as +205 (or a little over 2-1) to snatch the title away, the narrowest odds offered on any GSP opponent since BJ Penn challenged the Canadian half a decade ago at UFC 94. Here, some of the biggest names in the UFC weigh in on what could be the upset of the year.
