Diego out of UFC 90


Multiple sources have confirmed that Diego Sanchez is out of his fight at UFC 90 against Thiago Alves.

Sanchez pulled out of the fight due to torn rib cartilage and will be replaced on the Oct. 25 fight card at the Allstate Arena by fellow TUF 1 alum Josh Koscheck.

Koshcheck had been scheduled to headline UFC Fight Night 16: “UFC Fight for the Troops” on Dec. 10 in Fayetteville, N.C. against Yoshiyuki Yoshida. A replacement for Koscheck in that bout is still pending.

Man this card is having a rough day.

I guess Thiago and Thales will have easy replacements or will get moved out of the card now.

This sucks a big fat one, let's just hope a formidable replacement is on hand.

Aw this sucks! That would have been a war.

No one worth a crap is going to take a fight against a fighter as dangerous as Alves on such notice.

Dont you mean Thiago Alves not diego. Anyway i wouldnt mind see koshek step in or karo for the rematch. I know Koshek has that fight with yoshida coming up so that is not going to happen. Anybody know when Swick is returning? he wouldnt be bad either.

First Reljic and now Sanchez. This sucks big time. I was realy looking forward to watching them fight. I wonder who could fill in for Sanchez. Not enough time for someone like koscheck or any other contender. Maybe they will pull him off the card completely, who knows.

I cant believe this, i was looking forward to this so much. Hope they find a decent replacement, a rematch with Lytle if he gets through his 89 fight ok would be great, Lytle v Alves I was a great fight untill the cut stopped it.

Dammit, dammit, dammit, dammit, dammit! I love me some Sanchez, and I wanted to see how he and Thiago Alves would match up. Who, in the hell, can they replace Dayg's with? Fitch? Yoshida? Kos? Man....

Just checked Sherdog, yeah, seems like Kos the Boss is stepping up.

What does Yoshida do now?

Koscheck saves the day :)

If you want to make a true #1 contender fight at 170, that's probably even better than Diego/Alves given Koscheck's win over him. If both Koscheck and GSP win, I wouldn't mind seeing GSP/Kos II.
