MMAFighting reports today that Costa Philippou suffered a facial laceration that will keep him out of his bout with ‘Jacare’ Souza at UFC on FX 8. The bout was scheduled to be the co-main event for the May 18 card in Brazil.
Philippou was coming off a victory over Tim Boetsch at UFC 155 while Ronaldo ‘Jacare’ Souza was looking to make his UFC debut.
Chris Camozzi, who was an injury replacement for C.B. Dolloway on this card, will step in to face Souza. Camozzi was scheduled to take on Rafael Natal; Natal will now take on Joao Zeferino.
