An undisclosed injury has forced former World Extreme Cagefighting bantamweight champion Brian Bowles (8-1 MMA, 5-1 WEC) out of his WEC 52 bout with Wagnney Fabiano (14-2 MMA, 4-1 WEC), and a search is underway for a replacement.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) today confirmed the card change with sources close to the event.

WEC 52 takes place Nov. 11 at The Pearl at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, and Bowles vs. Fabiano tentatively was slotted for the night's Versus-televised main card.

I wonder if Torres would take this fight on short notice?

Would be a fascinating fight, but if Torres is unable to fight, I expect the Wineland vs. Page fight to be compromised.
