Roger Huerta pulled out?

If you look at the fight card on for UFC 61, Roger Huerta's information has been replaced with "tba". I assume this means he pulled out of his fight with Franca..has anyone heard anything?

I still haven't heard anything, and I guess nobody else has either. They did post an article on saying that Franca needs an opponent, but they didn't say anything about who it's gonna be.

straight from their site.

With UFC newcomer Roger Huerta forced to pull out of his bout with Hermes Franca at UFC 61 due to injury, Joe Jordan has been tabbed to replace his teammate against the Brazilian vet on Saturday at the Mandalay Bay Events Center.

Hes world-class, one of the best out there, so I definitely have my hands full with him, said Jordan of Franca. He doesnt have great wrestling takedowns, but he tries very hard so it makes up for some of the lack of skill there. He has world-class submissions and his striking is not real smooth or real pretty, but hes got a lot of power and he tries real hard.

A 27-year-old native of Pikeville, Kentucky who now fights out of the Miletich camp in Bettendorf, Iowa, Jordan (23-9-2 in MMA) is a hard-nosed competitor who is currently riding a five fight winning streak, and hes thrilled to be making his Octagon debut this weekend.

I know everybody says it, but other than a dream come true, its vindication, said Jordan.
