Two days after UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez was forced out of his UFC 180 bout against Fabricio Werdum on November 15 due to injury, lightweight contenders Joe Lauzon and Diego Sanchez have suffered the same fate as Velasquez, as injuries to both have prompted the removal of their bout from the Mexico City event.
Stepping up to open up the main card will be a bout between hard-hitting welterweights Edgar Garcia and Hector Urbina. The UFC 180 card will proceed with 11 bouts, headlined by the interim UFC heavyweight title fight between Fabricio Werdum and Mark Hunt.
