Lauzon fights get me more excited than almost any others. Looks like a potentially epic card.

A lot of exciting fighters on the card
Even though Maynard is pretty boring, I think he has something to prove & Lauzon will bring it to him

With Gray Maynard pulling out with an injury, original opponent Joe Lauzon will now face Jim Miller on 12/29 in Las Vegas.

Another injury
Chris Weidman suffered a shoulder injury in training yesterday, thought to be a torn labrum and a possible dislocated or separated shoulder, which will require surgery. He's estimated to be out of action three to six months. Weidman was scheduled to face Tim Boetsch in a key middleweight bout on the 12/29 show in Las Vegas.
Costa Philippou, his teammate, whose fight this past Saturday in Montreal with Nick Ring fell through, will now face Boetch.

That sucks for Weidman, but Boetsch/Philippou should be fun.

In related news, UFC 155 got another quality fight:

Todd Duffee back in the UFC, faces Phil De Fries at UFC 155

Two years after he left, Todd Duffee (7-2 MMA, 1-1 UFC) is returning to the octagon.

The 26-year-old heavyweight is set to fight Phil De Fries (9-1 MMA, 2-1 UFC) at UFC 155, according to a recent report by Las Vegas Sun that was also confirmed by UFC officials.

UFC 155 takes place Dec. 29 at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas and airs live on pay-per-view and FX.

Duffee fills in for Matt Mitrione, who was slated to fight De Fries before he replaced an injured Shane Carwin against Roy Nelson at The Ultimate Fighter 16 Finale.

Once a red-hot prospect in the UFC, Duffee made his octagon debut at UFC 102 with a seven-second KO of Tim Hague, which at the time was considered the fastest knockout in the promotion's history.

He was released, however, after being knocked out by Mike Russow at UFC 114. He then fought a short-notice bout with then-Strikeforce champ Alistair Overeem and was knocked out in the first round.

Most recently, Duffee surfaced in April, where he notched a first-round of Neil Grove at Super Fight League 4.

De Fries most recently appeared at UFC on FOX 4, where he earned a second-round submission over Oli Thompson. The win put him back on the right foot after a first-round knockout at the hands of Stipe Miocic.

After watching Countdown I'm leaning a little more towards Velasquez. A lot of impressive stats, many of which end with "in the history of the UFC". Especially the fact that JDS has only been on his back for a grand total of 13 seconds. How long can that hold up, and what happens when he's there for a whole round?

I'm going to miss some of this because I'll be at a hockey game, but man I hope JDS puts brown pride to sleep again.

Melvin was robbed, he looked pretty good as the fight went on. Good card, the main is going to be exciting.

Tough round for Leben but he's never out of a fight.
