Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

Thiago Alves is the latest UFC fighter to be stung by the dreaded injury bug.

According to sources close to his camp, Alves has pulled out of his UFC 149 fight against Siyar Bahadurzada due to an undisclosed injury. MMAWeekly.com first reported the news on Friday. No replacement has been signed just yet.
Alves was looking to bounce back following his submission loss to Martin Kampmann at UFC on FX 2.

Earlier in the day, news broke that Thiago Silva pulled out of UFC 149 due to a back injury.

UFC 149, headlined by Jose Aldo vs. Erik Koch for the UFC featherweight title, will take place July 21 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
