Frankie Edgar suffered a back and rib injury, and Gray Maynard injured his knee, forcing the UFC to cancel their main event fight at UFC 130 later this month.

UFC president Dana White said Quinton "Rampage" Jackson vs. Matt Hamill will now be the main event on the Memorial Day weekend card in Las Vegas, with heavyweight fight Frank Mir vs. Roy "Big Country" Nelson becoming the co-main event.

The postponement of Edgar-Maynard III elevates Thiago Alves vs. Rick Story from the prelims on Spike to the main card.
