Big Nog out, Shawn Jordan faces Kongo at UFC 149.

Quote:
The bad luck for UFC 149 continues, as Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira has become the latest fighter to withdraw from the July 21 card.

According to sources close to the situation, Nogueira has not healed completely from the surgery he underwent to repair a broken humerus suffered in his UFC 141 defeat to Frank Mir. Due to lingering effects from that injury, “Minotauro” will be unable to face Frenchman heavyweight Cheick Kongo at the event, which takes place at the Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary, Alberta.

Taking the Brazilian’s place against Kongo will be former Louisiana State football standout Shawn Jordan (pictured). Though the pairing has not been officially announced by the UFC, Sherdog.com confirmed on Saturday with sources close to the Jackson’s MMA representative that Jordan has accepted the bout.

“Minotauro” joins a lengthy list of notable fighters -- Jose Aldo, Mauricio Rua, Thiago Silva, Thiago Alves, Michael Bisping, Yoshihiro Akiyama and Bibiano Fernandes -- who have withdrawn or exited the card for various reasons. UFC 149 is expected to be headlined by an interim bantamweight title tilt between Urijah Faber and Renan Pegado.

The 36-year-old Nogueira last competed in December, where his arm was broken just above the elbow by a kimura from Mir in a first-round submission defeat at UFC 141. More recently, the former Pride and UFC heavyweight champion made headlines for his participation in the Brazilian version of “Dancing with the Stars.”

A former Bellator Fighting Championships veteran, Jordan made his Octagon debut in March, scoring a second-round technical knockout win against Oli Thompson at UFC on FX 2. Prior to that, “The Savage” split a pair of bouts on the Strikeforce Challengers circuit, submitting current UFC talent Lavar Johnson last September and dropping a unanimous decision to Devin Cole in July. The Louisianan has finished all but one of his 13 career triumphs by knockout, technical knockout or submission.

Man its going to end up being that if you have any wins in 2012 it wasn't you were good, you just got the guy who didn't pull out of the fight because he was hurt. Holy hell!

Why did he take the fight in the first place if he wasn't ready yet?

The guy needs to hang them up, Nog is so broken down it's just worrying to see him still go out there. MMA Journalist Gareth Davies said it best when he stated that Nog missed a perfect chance to retire on a high in Rio!
