The UFC has NOT had a good start to the year in terms of injuries and suspensions.

Thanks to an injury to Brian Stann, the original UFC on Fox 4 main event has been scrapped and replaced by Mauricio "Shogun" Rua vs Brandon Vera.

Brandon Vera in a Fox main event? You heard it right.

The original main event for the UFC on Fox 4 card was supposed to be Brian Stann vs Hector Lombard, but Stann was forced to pull out due to injury.

This left the UFC on Fox 4 card without a main event, which led many people to believe that a fight would be pulled from the UFC 149 card.

That sort of happened.

Mauricio Rua, who was originally supposed to face Thiago Silva at UFC 149, was pulled off of the UFC 149 card and placed into the UFC on Fox 4 main event. His opponent will be Brandon Vera, who was thought to be out of the UFC after getting crushed by Thiago Silva at UFC 125 (this fight was eventually ruled a no contest after Silva was found to have submitted a false urine sample. )

Vera was given another chance in the UFC, and after beating Eliot Marshall at UFC 137, has "earned" a main event spot against Mauricio Rua.

So what happens to Lombard?

Well, Michael Bisping was forced to pull out of his UFC 149 fight against Tim Boetsch due to injury, so Hector Lombard will now be squaring off against Boetsch at UFC 149. Lombard is the former Bellator Middleweight title holder and will be making his first appearance in the UFC at UFC 149.

So - did you get all of that?

Here are the matches that have been scrapped:

Brian Stann vs Hector Lombard
Mauricio Rua vs TBA at UFC 149
Michael Bisping vs Tim Boetsch

Here are the matches that have been made:

Hector Lombard vs Tim Boetsch (UFC 149)
Mauricio Rua vs Brandon Vera (UFC on Fox 4 main event)

The reaction to the UFC on Fox 4 main event has been fairly tepid - it will be interesting to see what kind of ratings this event does.
