UFC 137: Brad Tavares injury promotes Jeff Curran vs Scott Jorgensen to televised fight card

via <a href=""></a>

What, you thought we were done tinkering with the UFC 137 fight card? Silly little MMA fan!

Middleweight mauler Brad Tavares has been bitten by the injury bug and forced to withdraw from the "Penn vs. Diaz" pay-per-view card set for Oct. 29 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

UFC officials made the announcement earlier today.

Stepping in for him against Dustin Jacoby, himself a late replacement, is promotional newcomer Clifford Starks; however, they will be sent back down to the Facebook Prelims and the bantamweight brawl between Jeff Curran and Scott Jorgensen will move up a few slots to take their place.
