In a real hit to UFC fight night 13, YahooSports is reporting that Stephan Bonnar has been forced off the UFN 13 card after suffering a torn ligament in his left knee. Bonnar will have to undergo surgery to have a cadaver ligament put in place to replace the torn lateral collateral ligament. Bonnar will be out a minimum of six months.

“I was doing nothing out of the ordinary, just working on my (jiu-jitsu) getting ready for my fight. I heard a pop and I thought, ‘Damn, what is this?’ I walked around on it a little, but when I got home, it was really stiff and swollen.”

It is not known whether the UFC will find a replacement to take on Matt Hamill at UFN 13, on April 2 from Bloomfield, Colorado.

    Man, I was really looking foward to see him fight Hamill. Its too bad because UFN 13 was looking stacked.

    I thought that was going to be a good fight I just hope they can get a suitable opponent for Hamill now. He deserves something after getting screwed in the Bisbing fight.

    i say bisping-hammill 2. bisping shouldn't drop down yet. big pussy. he needs to stay in the divsion to prove if he beat hammil or not. bisping is free that month.

    I agree with Brandon

    Throw Rashad in with Hamill

    Both are wrestlers and both have no cardio.

    i was looking forward to that one too, it could have been a war. your right brandon rashad would be a great replament i hope its him or at least some one decent.

    Cage do u like work for the website or did u just pick that name cause its fucking cool haha…I must say in my hopeful Rashad/ Hamill i give the win to Rashad because he is quicker and has quicker hands…Hamill's cardio seemed greatly improved with his fight with Bisping, or at least he went the distance

    i think that would be a good fight. I think rashad would win it in the second round.

    I'd give it to Rashad. I think that would be a good enough replacement.

    Na I dont really like Hamil (hes obviously a talented fighter but hes an asshole) so im definitly rooting for Rashad 100%, plus i think Rashad is an all around better fighter: Since this could very well be a wrestling/ ground match Evans has the advantage in takedown defence, and although Rashad is muck quicker with quicker hands Hamill has a big advantage in power

    I don't agree… His last 2 fights were poor and I am pissed off at the UFC for giving him McCarthy as his first fight at MW… when he could have fought Leben, Cote etc.. but, I think he has a agressive fight style (Flying Knees etc) that is a lot better to watch than Hamill's Wrestling…
