Rousimar Palhares Replaces Luiz Cane, Will Fight Yushin Okami at UFC 150


The injury bug continues to plague this summer's UFC cards.

UFC officials announced today that Brazilian Luiz Cané will not be making his scheduled middleweight debut against Yushin Okami at UFC 150: Henderson vs. Edgar II.

The man with the pound-for-pound most mispronounced name in MMA will step in to replace Cané: Rousimar "Toquinho" Palhares.

Both Palhares and Okami are looking to get back on track after KO losses at the hands of Alan Belcher and Tim Boetsch, respectively.

UFC 150 is scheduled for August 11 at the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado.
