UFC Sao Paulo has already lost its main event.

Less than two weeks after it was announced that light heavyweight veteran Glover Teixeira would headline UFC Fight Night: Sao Paulo against Jimi Manuwa, Texieira has already been forced to withdraw.

ESPN’s Ariel Helwani confirmed on Tuesday that Teixeira has pulled out due to a shoulder injury, and it’s reportedly the same one he’s been dealing with since his title fight loss vs. Jon Jones back in 2014. According to the report, there is concern that this injury could require surgery, but no decision has been made.

That could be an option. You know they'll want to keep a Brazilian Headlining the card since its in Brazil. So either that option or I could see them getting Manuwa to go on the following event Ufc 229 which needs some fights.

And since Ketlan Viera is pretty much a Top contender I could see them making Viera vs Evinger the Headliner. With ketlan winning she should or could get next crack at Nunes for the Title. Overall for a Brazil Fight Night it's not a bad card.

Can't prop you but ya that makes sense. Ketlen has the potential to be a future champ and another big win over a veteran of the sport could put her on the short list for a shot.

I’d find a low name replacement for Mannuwa and just have Lineker headline the event. He can fight Assuancio, Munhoz or have sterling or Stamann step in. It was a really weak main event ether way (even for the new low bar set for fight nights for fox/fx).

Thanks Man!

Manuwa turned down the Thiago Santos Fight. Maybe they can get him on the UFC 229 card the following week.

Or he can stay ready in case OSP vs Reyes get injured. They'll also be on 229 card.
