UFC 119: Mirko 'Cro Cop' vs Frank Mir booked for Sept. 25 with 'Minotauro' Nogueira hurt


Looks like it wasn't meant to be. 

The upcoming rematch between Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira and Frank Mir, originally scheduled for UFC 119 in Indianapolis, Indiana, has reportedly been called off after "Minotauro" was forced to withdraw from the Sept. 25 fight card due to an undisclosed injury.

Fighters Only brought word of the change in plans earlier today, and also reports that famed Croatian striker Mirko Filipovic is being tagged as "Big Nog's" replacement.

"Cro Cop" vs. Mir? No complaints here.

Nothing is official at this time, but stay tuned to for more information on this developing story as it becomes available.
