Thiago Alves Headed To The Shelf With Injury

Thiago Alves-Siyar Bahadurzada is off the UFC 149 event, as Alves was scratched with an injury, according to a report by MMAjunkie.com.

Alves joins Thiago Silva as a fighter hampered by the injury bug. Silva was forced out of his planned fight with Mauricio “Shogun” Rua for the same July card.

UFC 149 takes place July 21 on pay-per-view from Calgary, Alberta, Canada. A replacement for Alves to face Bahadurzada is currently being discussed by the UFC.

Bahadurzada (21-4-1) was a replacement for Yoshihiro Akiyama a few weeks ago after an injury knocked Akiayama from the card.
