Believe it or not UFC 137’s main card has suffered yet another injury blow with barely a week until the event is due to begin.
Earlier this week GSP Vs Carlos Condit was scrapped after a knee sprain forced the champion out, and that left a spot on the main card for Brad Tavares Vs Dustin Jacoby to step into.
Well that proved to be a shortlived switch as Tavares has now been struck off the card due to an undisclosed injury and Jacoby has now been shifted back down to the preliminary card where he’ll take on another fighter making his UFC debut, Clifford Starks.
Meanwhile a preliminary fight between Scott Jorgensen and Jeff Curran has now been bumped up to the opening slot on the main card to complete the card yet again.
While you’ve got to feel bad for Tavares and Jacoby missing out on the PPV spotlight this new change provides us with a fight in Jorgensen and Curran that, on paper at least, seems to be more worthy of the main card position.
