Glover Teixeira Off UFC Sao Paulo Card Due To Injury

UFC’s return to Sao Paulo, Brazil in September is left without a main event for now, after Glover Teixeira has pulled out of the bout due to a shoulder injury. What was set to be a Heavyweight bout between Teixeira and Jimi Manuwa is off the table, Ariel Helwani for ESPN reports, leaving the card with 11 bouts. Manuwa voiced his displeasure on the cancellation via Twitter, simply tweeting an angry emoji. This is not the first fight issue for this card, with Mark Godbeer pulling out of his fight with Luis Henrique due to injury. Ryan Spann has already committed to step in as a replacement for that fight. With just over a month to go until the show, UFC might have to scramble to find a main event replacement.
