Sakara out of UFC 158

Alessio Sakara (15-10 MMA, 6-7 UFC) and Patrick Cote (18-8 MMA, 5-8 UFC) will have to wait a bit longer to settle their business; a recently announced rematch at UFC 158 between the two middleweights has been scratched.

Sakara recently announced that kidney issues will keep him out of action into early 2013.

A UFC official told ( a replacement will be named shortly.

UFC 158 takes place March 16 at Bell Centre in Montreal. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FX and Facebook.

Sakara thought he had picked up a big TKO win over Cote this past month at UFC 154. But instead, referee Dan Miragliotta disqualified the Italian fighter for illegal strikes the back of Cote's head. Many believed Sakara should have been given a warning, and Cote an opportunity to recover to continue fighting.

But that didn't happen, and Sakara's request to have the bout overturned to a no-contest was denied.

Sakara had won three consecutive fights from 2008-2010, but he's since dropped three straight, including the DQ loss to Cote and defeats to contenders Chris Weidman and Brian Stann.

Cote, meanwhile, is now 5-1 in his past six fights. The lone defeat came to Cung Le earlier this year at UFC 148, where he returned to the organization for the first time since 2010.

Nothing too earth shattering, but please non-existent God, leave the rest of the main card alone.

I really don't know who Cote could beat at this point.

I thought for sure he'd KO Le and Sakara and Le beat him and Sakara nearly finished him for crying out loud.

That sucks. I was so pumped for the rematch. Both guys have been looking great recently and definitely deserve a place in the UFC. By no means should they retire or be cut.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

Is Sakara being out of a fight news anymore? He has fought 4 times in 3 years and got hurt/sick and had to back out of at least a half dozen fights. I think they should report that he is actually gonna fight that night until then I will just assume he is training to injure himself.

Sakara V Cote is cursed.

First they couldn't book it after trying 3 times, then when it does happen we have a shady finish, and now we can't see the rematch!

Seems like Sakara is always getting injured. He needs to train better.
