Not even the Canadians want to stick around for this one.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) recently announced yet another injury for its upcoming UFC 149 pay-per-view (PPV) fight card for the ScotiaBank Saddledome in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, on July 21, 2012.

The latest victim is Ontario's own Claude Patrick.

Stepping in to replace "The Prince" is the last man to defeat him, Brian Ebersole, who's fresh off a grueling unanimous decision win over T.J. Waldburger at the UFC on FX 4 event last month in Atlantic City, his fourth straight "W" since joining the ZUFFA ranks back in early 2011.

The "Bad Boy" takes on division up-and-comer James Head who, despite his background in boxing, has done his share of submission fighting, having last tapped Papy Abedi at the UFC on FUEL TV 2 event earlier this year in Sweden.

Can he overcome the experience of the hairy arrow?

UFC 149: "Faber vs. Barao" now offers a completely revamped fight card that also features a middleweight mash-up between Hector Lombard vs. Tim Boetsch as well as welterweight war pitting Matt Riddle vs. Chris Clements.
