Vinicius out with knee injury, Alcantara awaits new opponent

USA TODAY Sports

Marcos Vinicius has been forced out of his fight against Yuri Alcantara at UFC on FX 8 with a knee injury.

Tatame reports that former Ultimate Fighter Brazil season one competitor Marcos "Vina" Vinicius has injured his knee and has been pulled from his fight at UFC on FX: Belfort vs. Rockhold. "Vina" fought for both Team Belfort and Team Wanderlei while part of TUF Brazil, losing to Hugo Viana, and Godofredo Pepey, before being eliminated from the tournament.

Marcos Vinicius Vina as Tatame found, was forced to leave the duel of green-and-yellow against Yuri Marajó because of a knee injury.

The UFC organization already knows of the injury, but has not yet decided the substitute...

Vinicius is 1–1 in the UFC with a victory over Wagner Campos at UFC 147, and more recently a loss to Johnny Bedford in his bantamweight debut. He was set to face Yuri Alcantara, who fought Pedro Nobre to a no-contest back in January, a result that ended in Nobre's release from the organization.

While no replacement has been announced, it is still expected that Alcantara will remain on the card.
