No Holidays for the Injury Bug: Tarec Saffiedine, Costa Philippou Pull Out of Upcoming Fights


(#TheTimeIsNow…to throw this poster in the damn garbage pile.)

While we at CagePotato decided to take the day off yesterday to spend time with our children, the UFC injury plague was hard at work on January 1st, steady knockin’ fighters off of main cards. Here’s the latest casualty list…

- UFC welterweight Tarec Saffiedine has been forced to withdraw from his scheduled UFC Fight Night 60 main event against Matt Brown on February 14th due to a groin injury. The UFC will have to hustle to find a decent replacement opponent for Brown, because no other fight on the lineup screams “headliner.” We’re not trying to be a dick or anything, but when your event is so weak that a Tarec Saffiedine injury destroys it, maybe you deserve whatever happens to you?

- Thanks a rib injury, middleweight vet Costa Philippou has pulled out of his UFC Fight Night 59: McGregor vs. Siver main card bout against Uriah Hall. The UFC is currently looking for a short-notice replacement opponent for Hall. UFC Fight Night 59 goes down Jaunary 19th in Boston, and…oh my God…this is terrible. Folks, I regret to inform you that Jose Aldo has decapitated Conor McGregor and is using his head as a football. We’ll let you know when Dennis Siver gets a new opponent. Stay tuned for up-to-the-minute reports on Jose Aldo’s impending murder trial.
