It is now being reported that Costa Philippou is off the UFC On FX 8: Belfort Vs Rockhold card. Apparently Philippou sustained a cut during training above his eye, and the cut was serious enough to keep him out of his scheduled bout with Ronaldo ”˜Jacare’ Souza. The UFC has made no indication as to if they will look for a replacement for Jacare as the fight is just over two weeks away.

MMAFighting was the first to report the story. UFC On FX 8: Belfort Vs Rockhold takes place on on May 18 at Arena Jaragua in Santa Catarina, Brazil. Middleweights Vitor Belfort and former Strikeforce Champion Luke Rockhold will meet in the main event.
