12:11 PM ET 07.19 | Two more injuries have struck the UFC 163 main card. Clint Hester and Phil Harris have been pulled from their respective bouts against Cezar Ferreira and John Linekar. Hester was forced out of his scheduled bout with torn cartilage in his ribs, while Harris suffered a fractured orbital bone. Despite the injuries coming just a few weeks away from the pay-per view, the UFC officials were able to find two replacements. Ferreira will now be facing off against Thaigo Santos, while Linekar gets a match against Jose Maria Tome. Both Santos and Tome will be making their UFC debuts.
