Igor Pokrajac Out, Mike Massenzio in Against Krzysztof Soszynski at UFC 131

UFC 131: The Injuries Keep Racking up for the UFC

Bleacher Report's Dale De Souza:

We are officially less than four days away from UFC 131 in Vancouver, and yet even the heavily stacked card is not immune to losing a potentially monumental clash either it seems.

While the details are unknown, MMA Weekly reports that a UFC 131 preliminary bout in the light heavyweight division will be put on hold, as Igor Pokrajac has been forced to withdraw from his bout against Krzysztof Soszynski.

Again, the details are unknown, although possible visa issues are rumored to be the most likely candidate for a form of logic behind the scratching of Pokrajac from the fight.

In any event, in for Pokrajac is the returning Mike Massenzio, who has posted up an April win over Nate Kittredge prior to his return to the Octagon, where he went 1-2-0 as a middleweight.

Massenzio has returned with hopes of creating a successful stint at light heavyweight, but to do so, he'll have to take on the unenviable task of taking on The Ultimate Fighter 8 veteran on roughly four days notice.
