Brandon Vera Out of UFC on FX 3 Rematch with Thiago Silva

Brandon VeraA rematch between light heavyweights Brandon Vera and Thiago Silva has been scrapped just days after it was announced for UFC on FX 3, as Vera has been injured and Silva now awaits a new opponent for the May 15 event in Fairfax, Virginia, the UFC announced Saturday.

Silva dominated Vera to earn a unanimous decision in their first meeting 13 months ago at UFC 125, but Silva was suspended one year for faking his drug test, causing the win to be overturned and Vera to be invited back to the UFC.

The only fight now booked for UFC on FX 3 is a middleweight bout between Jason MacDonald and Tom Lawlor.
