UFC 161 will have to produce yet another event poster. On Sunday, GloboEsporte.com announced Antonio Rogerio Nogueira has been forced out of his June 15 rematch against Mauricio “Shogun” Rua with a herniated disc.
The UFC is currently scouring its roster for a suitable substitute to meet Shogun in the show’s co-featured attraction.
Just three weeks ago, interim bantamweight champ Renan Barao was forced out of the main event against Eddie Wineland, which bumped Rashad Evans and Dan Henderson into the card’s top spot.
