Nogueira becomes latest casualty

A shoulder injury suffered in training has forced Antonio Rogerio Nogueira to pull out of his UFC 133 bout with Rich Franklin.

The UFC announced the switch on Saturday night.

UFC 133 has been plagued with injuries, most notably in the main event. Jon Jones was unable to defend his title against Rashad Evans, so Phil Davis took his place. But a knee injury to Davis forced him from the bout, and UFC veteran Tito Ortiz took his place.

UFC 133 takes place Aug. 6 in Philadelphia.
