We're less than three weeks out from UFC 133, and it looks like the docket is still being finalized. Here are the three big issues:
1. Rich Franklin is still without an opponent. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira pulled out with an injury yesterday, adding to an already-extensive list visiting the infirmary. The UFC is reportedly looking for a replacement, but that may prove impossible given the state of the light heavyweight division. The easiest move would be to bump Alexander Gustafsson or Matt Hamill into Nogueira's spot.
2. Five prelim fights are scheduled for Facebook. Including:
3. One fight is scheduled for Spike TV: Chad Mendes vs. Rani Yahya (per the official UFC event page). The UFC will need to call up one of the fights from Facebook, unless they're content with showing 45 minutes of commercials (and, hey, knowing Spike TV, that may be the plan).
Dana White would be wise to lock all these guys in padded rooms once this card is finalized.
