Shoulder Injury Bumps Brian Stann Out of UFC on FOX 4 Fight Against Hector Lombard

(I know, dude. I know.)

I think we can officially call it a “wave” of injuries now: The latest UFC fighter to withdraw from an upcoming marquee matchup is middleweight Brian Stann, who will not be making his UFC on FOX 4 main event date with former Bellator champ Hector Lombard due to a shoulder injury. According to MMA Fighting, Stann will not require surgery, but will be sidelined for six-to-eight weeks.

No word yet on who will come in to replace Stann against Lombard, if anybody — but theoretically, that person will need a strong chin if he hopes to last past the first round. The co-main event for UFC on FOX 4 (August 4th, Los Angeles) is a just-as-marketable light-heavyweight feature between Lyoto Machida and Ryan Bader, which could be bumped to the top as a last resort. We’ll keep you posted when we know more.

I also really like the idea of Rashad making a 185 debut here.

honestly i think boetsch is fighting bisping and wanderlei is fighting franklin. if belchers not injured he'd be the best fight. ed herman would be a great fight too.

Yushin Okami . . .*crickets* . . . *crickets* -- Why the hell not, right up until Tim Boetsch went Captain Caveman on his dome, Okami was dominant and he is a tough match-up for anyone much less a guy with possible "octogan jitters."

Is Muñoz still injured?

Bisping would've been a nice replacement.

@Serbia: Leben is serving a drug suspension from the Muñoz fight.
@JohnnySac: You really think they'll take Bisping out of a very winnable fight against Tim Boetsch and feed him to a rabid dog like Lombard? We all know Bisping isn't good enough for a "legitimate" shot at the title, which is why the UFC is going to keep feeding him winnable fights until the timing is right.

Sorry if this is a double post, but I like the idea of Belcher .. unfortunately I think he's injured at the moment. I say throw in Bisping for a legitimate shot at the title. I also really like the idea of Rashad making a 185 debut here.

Who trains so hard that they injur their shoulder? Obviously, he chickened out...........give him Alan Belcher.

Rashad could totally make 185 and he has name recognition. Plus, who wouldn't love to see Lombard KNOCK THE FUCK out of Rashad?

Lombard vs Leben!! That would be an awesome match up guaranteed to end in k.o.
