Injury Forces Tapia Out Of WEC Title Tilt With Torres

The following was posted on the official WEC website late Monday:

A knee injury suffered during training camp has forced top bantamweight contender Manny Tapia to withdraw from his June 1st title bout against WEC 135-pound champion Miguel Torres. There is no word as of yet as to how long Tapia will be sidelined, and a suitable replacement opponent for the newly crowned Torres will be announced shortly. The June 1st WEC card at Sacramento’s Arco Arena is headlined by the epic WEC featherweight championship showdown between Urijah Faber and Jens Pulver.
