    Lamas could offer to help out but doubt he's in the mood to do Zuffa any favors, judging by his tone. They could always offer him extra $krill but the turnaround is quick and very short notice.

    Well shit...How's Lamas doing? He didn't get a big medical suspension dis he? If he were to step up and win that would certainly solidify him as the #1 contender.

    Manny Gamburyan injured, will miss UFC 157

    Manny Gamburyan injured, will miss UFC

    UFC featherweight Manny Gamburyan, scheduled to fight Chad Mendes on Feb. 23 on the UFC 157 undercard, suffered a broken thumb and fractured elbow Thursday night during a training session. The injuries will force him to withdraw from the Mendes bout.

    While the Gamburyan-Mendes matchup was crucial to helping the Armenian-born Gamburyan climb the featherweight ranks again, the bout had both historic and personal significance for the fighter. He’s had a longstanding friendship with headliner Ronda Rousey, with whom he’s trained judo since she was a child. Gamburyan told in an interview last month that he sought out UFC president Dana White to ask him for the opportunity to appear on the same card as Rousey. “It’s an honor to fight on the same card as her,” he told in the interview.

    It’s now an honor, it appears, that will have to wait for his recovery.

    There was no immediate response from a UFC spokesman about plans to replace Gambuyran.
