Steve Cantwell has recently been forced to pull out of his anticipated match-up with Vladimir Matyushenko due to undisclosed circumstances according to a recent report by MMAWeekly.
With UFC 108 just several days away, the prospect of finding a late replacement opponent for “The Janitor” seems unlikely at best, but if anyone can do it, it would seem as if UFC Matchmaker Joe Silva is the man for the job.
Here’s a quick list of the bouts that had been previously expected for the card, but have fallen through due to a laundry list of reasons:
- Anderson Silva vs. Vitor Belfort
- Brock Lesnar vs. Shane Carwin
- Cain Velasquez vs. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira
- Junior dos Santos vs. Gabriel Gonzaga
- Paul Daley vs. Carlos Condit
- Jim Miller vs. Tyson Griffin
- Jim Miller vs. Sean Sherk
- Martin Kampmann vs. Rory Markham
