Brandon Vera landing the kick on Randy Couture

Brandon Vera landing a kick on Randy Couture

The planned rematch between Brandon Vera and Thiago Silva for UFC on FX 3 has been scrapped. UFC officials on Saturday announced that Vera had to back out of the bout due to an undisclosed injury.

UFC on FX 3 is expected to take place May 15 in Virginia.

The two first met at UFC 125 on New Year’s Day 2011. Silva initially won the bout. The result was later deemed a no contest, however, due to Silva his post-fight urine sample testing “inconsistent with human urine.”

Silva also had his license revoked for one year and was assessed a $33,750 fine.

Initially released by the UFC following the fight, Vera was brought back, winning a unanimous decision over Eliot Marshall at UFC 137.

Silva has not competed since the first bout.
