*UPDATED* Evan Dunham Pulls Out of UFC 132 Bout With George Sotiropoulos Due to Injury; Rafael Dos Anjos Named as Replacement


(Dos Anjos will step in for Dunham against G-Sots)

Evan Dunham will have to wait a little longer before he can erase his last Octagon appearance from the minds of fans. The UFC lightweight prospect, who is 0-2 in his past two outings has been forced to pull out of a scheduled UFC 132 bout with George Sotiropoulos (14-3, 7-1 UFC) on July 2 because of an undisclosed injury.

MMAJunkie was first to report the news yesterday.

The UFC moved quickly and signed Rafael Dos Anjos (14-5 3-3 UFC) last night to replace Dunham against Sotiropoulos, who suffered his first UFC loss against Denis Siver in front of his countrymen back home in Australia at UFC 127 in February.

The bout will be Dos Anjos’ first in nearly a year as he has been rehabbing a jaw injury he suffered in his UFC 117 bout with Clay Guida in August. Heading into the fight Dos Anjos was riding a three-fight win streak after beating Rob Emerson, Kyle Bradley and Terry Etim.

    ^ I'd give it a go Bro, but I think I'd end up with my head jammed up my own ass and my arms and legs tied in a figure four, but I'd have a crack

    well afterwards you could tell him what a fan you are , and offer to buy him a beer, I bet that would go a long way to soothing the pain. besides He seems like a nice lad, surely he wouldn't tie you in a knot.

    He does seem like a nice lad, and i would definitely buy him a beer and thank him for kicking my ass, he could autograph any of my body parts he didn't break!

    So everyone agrees Young Assassin vs. G-Sot for the WIN???
  16. Jonny5 Says:

    Wed, 05/04/11 - 12:11


    I mean how would they dare have Guillard vs. Roller on the card when they could drop roller for Guillard vs. Sotiroupolous??

    Dos Anjos is tough as houses, and he's one of my favorite lightweights. Gonna be a good fight.

    Ben G. When the numbers of spam posts on these forums account for close to half of all comments, do you not think that maybe, just maybe,......you need to do something about this? I wouldn't normally say much, but I've noticed, it's the same douche bags doing this day in and day out. Would you please ban them? Can you ban them? Why the fuck have you not banned them?

    @Ballkick I agree. @Snackdaddy I also agree about Dos Anjos being tough but don't you think Guillard vs G-Sots would be more defining of the UFC LW div.? I mean they could have Roller Dos Anjos and have the 2 more relev. lw's square off instead.
