The Feb. 19 UFC Fight Night event scheduled to Nova Scotia, Canada needs a new main event, as Stefan Struve has withdrawn from his fight against Junior dos Santos due to a shoulder injury according to Combate.

UFC is still listing this fight, as they haven’t updated the website yet. This was going to be a rematch of JDS’s victory over Struve at UFC 95.

Keller’s Analysis: This card requires a new JDS opponent or an entirely new main event, as the second billed fight is between Cezar Ferreira and Elias Theodorou at Middleweight. Both have good records, but neither is ranked in UFC’s Top 15 or MMATorch’s Top 10 in Middleweight, and neither are a “name” fighter to carry a cable network broadcast.
