Sinosic dropped out of a rematch with Chris Haseman due to a shoulder injury, while Rothwell was scheduled to face off against former PRIDE Superstar Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic, but an undisclosed illness forced him to drop out of the fight.
Stepping in for Rothwell will be Anthony Perosh, a veteran Australian fighter who competed in the UFC before. He currently holds an 0-2 UFC record, having lost to Jeff Monson at UFC 61 Christian Wellisch at UFC 66. Perosh has a 10—5 record and will only have a few days notice to face the legendary Croatian.
No word yet on whether Haseman will fight on the card against a new opponent.
It looks like the Injury Curse continues.
