UFC Sao Paulo got a new main event. Now it’s going to need a new co-headliner.


Ketlen Vieira is injured and out of her women’s bantamweight contender bout with Tonya Evinger, which was scheduled for Sept. 22 in Brazil, Vieira confirmed with MMA Fighting’s Guilherme Cruz on Monday.

Vieira said she has a knee injury and will require surgery. MMAjunkie was the first to report the news, including that the UFC is seeking a replacement to fight Evinger. Vieira said she is unsure how long she will be out.

That’s a bummer, I think she would have handled Evinger in all areas and a win would have probably given her either a bigger name or even a title shot. Ketlen matches up very well with the top women of the division, she’s very well rounded with no real weakness that I can see.

Agreed. Figured she'd fight Nunes next after the Cyborg Superfight. She's earned it really. But Evinger is no slouch.
