LAW MMA UPDATE
**The UFC 149 card set for July 21st in Calgary, Alberta has to be the most cursed card in company history with yet another injury taking a marquee name off the bill. Sherdog broke the news that Heavyweight Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira has pulled out of his fight with Cheick Kongo and will be replaced by Shawn Jordan. The main card has seen injuries to Jose Aldo, Thiago Alves, Thiago Silva, Yoshihiro Akiyama, Michael Bisping and additionally Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua was moved off the card to the FOX card in August as well as Bibiano Fernandes being taken off the card after it was revealed he had not officially signed with the UFC. The event sold out immediately with the gate already past the $4,000,000 mark and been cursed ever since tickets went on sale.
**The UFC has announced that Stipe Miocic will fight Stefan Struve in the main event of their September 29th card in Nottingham, England and airing on FUEL TV in the U.S. This was met by a lot of negativity by those in the U.K. but with a company running so many shows you are not going to have top names on every show and that’s the reality of the current model. Both Miocic and Struve are coming off victories at UFC 146 in May.
**Strikeforce Light Heavyweight Rafael ‘Feijao’ Cavalcante has been suspended for one-year following a positive drug test coming back from the California State Athletic Commission for a banned substance. Cavalcante defeated Mike Kyle in quick fashion back on May 19th at the Strikeforce card in San Jose and was rumoured to be fighting Gegard Mousasi later this year for the vacant Light Heavyweight Title. In California they have the ability to change a win on someone’s record, who tests positive into a no contest, which is what is expected to happen with this fight.
**Yves Lavigne has been appointed by the Nevada State Athletic Commission to officiate the Anderson Silva Vs Chael Sonnen Middleweight Title fight on July 7th at UFC 148 in Las Vegas.
