    Heavyweight Heath Herring will not compete against prospect Cain Velasquez at UFC 99 on June 13 due to an unspecified injury.

    The promotion announced the change via its official Twitter account on Tuesday afternoon. A replacement for Herring will be announced on Wednesday, the promotion added.

    Calls to Herring requesting details on the situation were not returned.

    A first shift in the European card’s line-up arose Monday when Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic announced his Octagon return against Mustapha Al-Turk, who was previously booked to face American Todd Duffee. Duffee’s replacement opponent is not known at this time.

    The summer card in Cologne, Germany has recently met complications of another kind when German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung issued a front-page story denouncing the event’s brutality. The UFC’s local promoter, Mark Lieberberg, granted a ban on minors’ attendance at the event, according to a report on Yahoo! Sports.

    7,200 tickets have been sold for the event, the report furthered.

    A catch-weight fight between Rich Franklin and Wanderlei Silva headlines the card.

    FML Velasquez/Herring is the best fight on this card too :wtc:


    now if they can get Crocop in time to replace Heath, this would be EPIC :bowdown:

    I want to see Mirko with a highlight reel KO and Cain to work his way up in contentions. Hopefully a contender will step in to fight Cain.

    If you were talking about any other fighter i'd say that has some merit, not with Heath though.

    Cain is the perfect guy to put Kongo in his place, if Cain fights smart, which he always does, Kongo will be put on his back and pounded on
