    should be interesting. i pick aurelio, i think he'll have the better strategy to work the top game and keep it against franca.

    Report: Aurelio replaces injured Tibau, meets Franca at UFC 90

    by MMAjunkie.com Staff on Sep 01, 2008 at 10:33 am ET
    [​IMG]A shoulder injury has forced Gleison Tibau (15-6 MMA, 4-3 UFC) out of UFC 90, and he'll be replaced by Marcus Aurelio (16-6 MMA, 2-2 UFC) in a bout with Hermes Franca (18-7 MMA, 5-4 UFC).

    The news comes from Sherdog.com, citing Franca. However, the UFC hasn't officially announced the bout.

    UFC 90, which features a main event of UFC middleweight champ Anderson Silva vs. Patrick Cote, takes place Oct. 25 at Allstate Arena near Chicago in Rosemont, Ill.

    Franca, who tested positive for (and admitted) steroid use after a fight with then-champ Sean Sherk in 2007, served a one-year suspension and returned in July for UFC Fight Night 14. There, he suffered a unanimous-decision loss to Frankie Edgar, but he earned a $25,000 "Fight of the Night" bonus in defeat.

    He'll look to snap the losing skid against Aurelio, a longtime friend and former instructor.

    Aurelio, a PRIDE veteran who's had mixed success in the UFC, most recently suffered a unanimous-decision loss to Tyson Griffin at UFC 86. Aurelio has struggled against top competition (suffering decision losses to Griffin and Clay Guida) while making short work of mid-level talent (with first-round stoppages of Luke Caudillo and Ryan Roberts).

    Aurelio has now lost four of his past six fights.
