Let's get you caught up on all the fight changes for UFC 132, scheduled for July 2 in Las Vegas.

- Jon Fitch is out. He injured his shoulder and had to pull out of his rematch with BJ Penn for the No. 1 contender at welterweight. Penn is without a fight for 132 right now, and it could remain that way,

- Wanderlei Silva is in. "The Axe Murderer" returns to the octagon for the first time since defeating Michael Bisping at UFC 110 on Feb. 20, 2010. He'll fight Chris Leben.

- Urijah Faber vs. Dominick Cruz. This rematch will be for the UFC bantamweight title, and Cruz's only career loss came at the hands of Faber in March 2007.

- Tito Ortiz still in. "The Huntington Beach Bad Boy" has yet to pull out of his fight against Ryan Bader, so maybe he'll stay healthy all the way through to July 2. Ortiz has struggled against top-level wrestlers, and Bader certainly qualifies as such.
