The musical chairs for the UFC 148 and UFC 149 cards continues after Jose Aldo was forced to pull out of UFC 149 (vs Erik Koch) with an injury.

This left UFC 149 in Calgary without a main event, so Dana White and company decided to move Urijah Faber vs Renan Barao (for the interim Bantamweight title) to that card.

The main event of UFC 148 remains Anderson Silva vs Chael Sonnen.

To say that UFC 148 and UFC 149 have been decimated by injury would be the understatement of the century.

Let's look at how the cards looked originally vs how they look now:

UFC 148

Anderson Silva vs Chael Sonnen
Urijah Faber vs Dominick Cruz
Tito Ortiz vs Forrest Griffin
Cung Le vs Rich Franklin
Demian Maia vs Dong Hyun Kim

UFC 149

Jose Aldo vs Erik Koch
Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira vs Cheick Kongo
Mauricio Rua vs Thiago Silva
Thiago Alves vs Yoshihiro Akiyama
Michael Bisping vs Tim Boetsch

Now let's look at the cards:

UFC 148

Anderson Silva vs Chael Sonnen
Tito Ortiz vs Forrest Griffin
Cung Le vs Patrick Cote
Demian Maia vs Dong Hyun Kim

UFC 149

Urijah Faber vs Renan Barao
Hector Lombard vs Tim Boetsch
Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira vs Cheick Kongo
Siyar Bahadurzada vs Chris Clements

Injuries have put three different titles on hold - Bantamweight, Featherweight and Welterweight (GSP, Cruz, Aldo).

The UFC is surely hoping for a better second half of the year when it comes to injuries..
