It looks as though UFC Fight Night 137 has lost its original main event, as it’s being reported that Glover Teixeira has withdrawn from the September 22nd card.

Teixeira was scheduled to fight fellow light-heavyweight contender, Jimi Manuwa, but ESPN is reporting that Teixeira has injured his shoulder, and cannot compete. It is not known yet whether Teixeira will require surgery.

The 38 year-old Teixeira is coming off a decision loss to Corey Anderson in July.

UFC FN 137 will take place in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
