UFC 131 Fight Card: Krzysztof Soszynski Vs. Mike Massenzio Official

The injury bug continues to plague the Ultimate Fighting Championship, seemingly worse this summer than any time in recent memory. Originally slated to face Igor Pokrajac at UFC 131: Carwin vs. dos Santos, Krzysztof Soszynski will now face late-replacement Mike Massenzio instead. The UFC confirmed the news on their website today. To wit:

Light-heavyweight Krzysztof Soszynski has had a change of opponent -- again --  for his UFC 131 bout in Vancouver this Saturday. UFC veteran Mike Massenzio has verbally agreed to take the bout against Soszynski just six days out from the June 11 event, Dana White announced today.

Originally slated to fight Anthony Perosh, who suffered an injury, Soszynski was then expected to fight Igor Pokrajac, who also suffered an injury that forced him to cancel.
