‘TUF Live’ Winner Michael Chiesa Pulls Out of ‘UFC on Fox 5′ Due to Undisclosed Illness


(Props: facebook.com/MichaelChiesaUFC)

Just days after UFC on Fox 5 lost its originally scheduled heavyweight bout between Brendan Schaub and Lavar Johnson when Johnson backed out due to a groin-pull, the December 8th event has lost another high-profile prelim match on short notice. The UFC announced yesterday that lightweight Michael Chiesa has been forced to withdraw from his fight against Marcus LeVesseur.

“Less than a week out from his backyard bout, Seattle’s Michael Chiesa has been forced to withdraw from UFC on FOX due to illness. The TUF Live season winner had been first slated to fight Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt Rafaello ‘Tractor’ Oliveira, then lightweight Marcus LeVesseur when Oliveira was injured,” UFC.com reported.

The particular illness was not disclosed but one imagines that Chiesa would have to be awfully jacked-up to pull out of such a huge fight for himself. It would have been Chiesa’s first UFC bout since winning TUF Live at the series’ finale show last June, and he would have been fighting in front of his hometown fans in Seattle, on a FX-televised platform before a monster FOX event.

Its all fun and games when Strikeforce events go to crap because everyone in the freaking world is injured at the same time. But MMA needs the UFC to do well on Fox. Get well, soon, Maverick. We hope that UFC on Fox on 5 doesn’t lose any more bouts or else they may have trouble filling their Facebook, FX, and Fox slots.

At this point, it appears that Saturday’s FX prelim broadcast will proceed with just four bouts, most notably the re-scheduled lightweight contest between Jeremy Stephens and Yves Edwards.

Of course, I am no longer hoping to get a call from the UFC to be a replacement at an event in 2012 because Lavar Johnson already used the excuse I was going to make for pulling out of the fight.

Wow. He must really hate his hometown.

The12ozcurls that dennis siver turnIng his ankle on the way to the cage was pretty funny, and so was fried tacos dick on miks face. That being said if bj or rory or shogun or gus or nate or ben gets hurt, im going to cry i swear, how many awesome fights were we deprived this year couse of injuries. I hope theres a light at the end of this injury tunnel, cause its so said to see these ppv card get watered down. Ouse of these injuries. Like we missed jose, and frankie( even thought there gonna fight at ufc 156 next year) that fight could have already happend, and maybe i would have been fight of the year. Also we would have a better idea of whos the number 1 contander for jose, couse i feel like theres 4 fighters who are all one win away from it( the Korean zombie, erik koch, cub swanson, and recardo lamas

This plague is getting so bad I bet Buffer literally breaks a leg by Friday.

Y'all are wrong! Just like everyone else, Mikey was getting his face shaved since Movember is over. When the person shaving was done, they looked at his face and said "Dude, what the hell is that on your face!!" Whatever it is, he's had it for quite a long time, and the WHO is still testing to see if it is contagious.

Any word if they are going to drug test Nate Diaz? Just saying, probably a good idea.

Fuck Savannah and Charles and you too Julia - but you must be slipping if you ONLY made $5444 the last 4 weeks but made over 10/k last month. 4 weeks IS a month dipshit.

FYI - this was a reply to one of those awesome spammers.
Who wants to make $84 an hour?

Can I gets paids in gypsy tears and dog lard? With the lard contained in baby food jars? I will also considers reciepts of hair????

I wouldn't shit you about something like this 12oz. Right this minute Viva is running around trying to put some kind of Verbal Voodoo on poor Nathan Diaz just because he's mine.
The12ozCurls- December 3, 2012 at 11:30 am
What?
Is there a bounty on Jorgenson too?
angry little feet- December 3, 2012 at 11:00 am
Another unfortunate victim of the Viva Hate curse :(
Viva Hate- December 3, 2012 at 12:09 pm
Glad my curse has made it main page.
The12ozCurls- December 3, 2012 at 11:07 am
No shit!
I bet Dennis Siver turns an ankle during his walk-out
The12ozCurls- December 3, 2012 at 10:41 am
I've got dollars to donuts that Bendo will be involved in a Hula-Hoop accident by Thursday and Shogun will get bit by a venomous lady bug prior - thus forcing both guys out of their bouts. The day of the event, on the way to the Key Arena in Seatle, the UFC shuttle bus carrying most of the fighters will hydro-plane and become lodged on an embankment trapping Swick, Rory, Yves & Proctor. The new headlining fight will be Denis Siver VS Nam Phan - hence - saving it from its previously relegated Facebook Prelims spot. DAMN YOU 2012 injury curse!

Maybe he got AIDS from eating something out of the trash can. Based on that photo, I assume he is homeless.
