UFC 149 continues to see changes to it's main card as another big name has been forced out due to injury.

Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira had been pegged to face Cheick Kongo in the heavyweight division but has not completely healed from surgery to repair a broken humerus that occurred at UFC 141 when Nogueira faced Frank Mir.

Cheick Kongo will still fight on the card, at least for now, against Shawn Jordan.

Jose Aldo, Shogun Rua, Thiago Silva, Thiago Alves, Michael Bisping, Yoshihiro Akiyama and now Nogueira are just some of the names that had been on the card and forced off for various reason.
