More bad news for the Rio De Janeiro based UFC 163 card, as injuries remove two more fighters from the card. After having already lost Anthony Pettis, Josh Koscheck and Robert Drysdale due to injury, UFC 163 is also going to be missing Clint Hester and Phil Harris.
Harris tweeted this nasty picture of a fractured orbital bone, while Hester suffered torn cartilage in his ribs, which can't be nice. The switch ups of their matches are as follows; Cezar Ferreira will now newcomer Thiago Santos at Middleweight, while John Lineker will welcome UFC noob Jose Maria Tome at Flyweight.
The card, which is headlined by by Jose Aldo vs. Korean Zombie, has certainly had it's fair share of bumps along the way. I certainly hope it can overcome the adversity and deliver a strong card. Here is how the card looks at the moment:
