Cane Injured, Rousimar Palhares vs Yushin Okami at UFC 150

It would seem that the UFC’s injury woes once again show no sign of slowing. This time it’s ATT’s Luiz Cane who has been forced onto the inactive list.

“Banha,” who was set to make his middleweight debut against Yushin Okami, will now be replaced by countryman Rousimar Palhares.

Although Palhares is coming off of a deflating loss to Alan Belcher at UFC on Fox 3, the jiu jitsu ace was riding a three-fight win-streak, which included two leglock submissions.

Perennial middleweight contender Yushin Okami, is coming off of the first two-fight skid in his career. While little can be said about the loss to pound-for-pound king Anderson Silva, Okami’s most recent loss to Tim Boetsch at UFC 144 saw “Thunder” dominate until the third round, where his opponent blitzed him in a shocking come from behind finish.

UFC 150 is currently set to be headlined by a lightweight championship rematch between current champion Benson Henderson and the man he wrested the title from, Frankie Edgar.
