UFC Injury Watch 2012: Luiz Cane Out, Palhares In, Takes on Yushin Okami at UFC 150

Bet you didn’t see another injury coming.

The start of a new week brings yet another injury in the UFC. Adding on what has been one of the most injury-ridden time periods in MMA, Luiz Cane has been forced to withdraw from his upcoming bout with former middleweight contender Yushin Okami at UFC 150.

However, another Brazilian has stepped up on short notice, and will face off against “Thunder”. In one of the more manly looking fights on the card, Rousimar Palhares, who recently fell short to Alan Belcher on the latest FOX card, has taken up the daunting task, and will face the Japanese grappler.

The bout is expected to take place on the main card.

    That’s a better fight anyways.  Cain was gonna spend the fight on his back.  Okami will try and keep it standing with Palhares

      Agreed, this sounds like a more exciting fight

    This injury actually worked out really well. Fuck Luiz Cane, that dude fights like my sister. This is alot better of a matchup.
