Fitch/Alves to Be Replaced on UFC 111 Main Card with…Pellegrino/Camoes?

(And just like that, the dreaded "May not be broadcast" label is wiped clean.) has reacted quickly to the news of Thiago Alves’s removal from the UFC 111 card, and the way things look now it appears as they’ve decided to bump the fight between Kurt Pellegrino and Fabricio Camoes up from the prelims to fill the hole in the pay-per-view broadcast. If you ask us, Ricardo Almeida/Matt Brown might have been a better choice, or even Nate Diaz/Rory Markham, but once again, no one in the UFC front office asked us. That never fails to sting the old pride, either.

The change means that all you FightPicker players are going to want to update your answers to reflect your feelings on who will win the suddenly more important Pellegrino/Camoes showdown. If you don’t it might just cost you that Apple iPad, and wouldn’t that be a shame?

Fact: The Universe is against Alves avenging that win to Fitch, the agent of entropy.

Yeah I think that the reason they moved this fight is because Spike has been running commercials with Brown-Almeida and Diaz-Markham. The fights will all be seen anyways.

Man, f the iPad. I want Alves' brain.

mmamania is reporting the Fitch/Saunders update as well. If it is the case I think Saunders will get a chance to show his skills off his back that he was talking about in a recent interview. I'm a Saunders fan but Fitch generally seems to know how to nullify someone once on the ground and grind out a W.

Still, I'd rather see this than the Pellegrino fight.

While I would rather see the Almeida/Brown fight or Diaz/Markham fight on the main card, I really can't complain since they're still airing those fights on Spike.

This should be a good fight and I hope it proves to be PPV worthy.
Hope Batman uses "Don't Push Me" for his entrance again.
What would really be great is if Alves gets a clean bill of health like Imakeutap says....I'm down with that.

Are you fucking kidding me? If I have to watch this cock pile instead of Almeida-Brown I'm going to smear shit all over the inside of my house.

Would much rather see Nate Diaz and his shinanigans on the card than the guy he tapped out and some other nobody.
