After Stanislav Nedkov had to drop off the January 14th UFC 142 show due to visa issues earlier on Friday, fans were hoping that there wouldn’t be too many more changes to the card. Currently, rumors have already begun making round that three more fighters will miss the second Rio de Janeiro-based event.
Siyar Bahadurzada, Rob Broughton and Paulo Thiago (14-3 MMA, 4-3 UFC) have also been forced to withdraw due to various injuries, but UFC officials have yet to confirm the change. Replacement opponents have yet to be determined.
MMA Junkie reported the news a short time ago.
