The injury bug has bitten down hard on the UFC 142 fight card in Brazil with three fighters falling out this week.
Technically, two fighters were injured with the third falling out due to visa issues.
First off, heavyweight Rob Brougton has been forced off the Brazil card and out of his fight against Ednaldo Oliveira.
Feared striker Siyar Bahadurzada is the next fighter to fall prey to injury. He is now out of his scheduled bout against rising Brazilian phenom Erick Silva.
Finally, Stanislav Nedkov has been forced out of his fight against Fabio Maldonado due to visa issues coming to Brazil.
The UFC is actively searching for replacements for all three fighters and new bouts should be made in the coming days.
