Matt Riddle, Cody McKenzie Pull Out of Upcoming Bouts

And if neither pulled out? My God what a beautiful baby!

The fight cards for UFC 130 and UFC on Versus 4 are undergoing some minor renovations. It was announced yesterday that both Matt Riddle and Cody McKenzie have sustained injuries forcing them from their respective bouts.

McKenzie was hoping to get back in the win column after suffering his first professional career loss to Yves Edwards at UFC Fight for the Troops 2 last January, but an undisclosed injury has delayed his return to the cage. Now Gleison Tibau will have the honors of welcoming UFC newcomer Bart Palaszewski to the Octagon. Tibau will look to build on his victory over Kurt Pellegrino at UFC 128. Palaszewski, undoubtedly frustrated at all of the time he’s wasted training guillotine defense, last fought at WEC 53 where he dropped a split-decision to Kamal Shalorus.

Joining McKenzie in the bleachers will be welterweight Matt Riddle, who has also fallen victim to an undisclosed injury. Pennsylvania’s own Charlie Brenneman will add some local flavor to the card as he steps in to face T.J. Grant. Brenneman last competed at UFC Fight for the Troops 2, where he handed Amilcar Alves his walking papers via unanimous decision. Grant comes into this bout off of a loss to Ricardo Almeida at UFC 124, but has thus far maintained a perfect win-loss-win pattern in his six UFC appearances. So, you know, math is on his side.

Palaszewski is practically a bantam compared to Tibau. Tibau is the biggest middle weight i've ever seen. He's 70 kilograms on fight day but he's 5'8 and got shoulders the size of tyres. I see Tibau by a unanimous decision unless peoples/byrd are judging

Brennerman vs. Grant will be a good fight.
Grant wins the fight via Armbar in the 2nd.

Tibau vs. Palaszewski is a war.
Palaszewski wins in a split decision.
