According to a story published by the official UFC Web site, both UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar and No. 1 contender Gray Maynard have sustained injuries and will no longer be headlining UFC 130.

The light heavyweight tilt between Quinton "Rampage" Jackson and Matt Hamill will now take the headlining spot, which is sure to lower the number of pay-per-view buys. Taking up the co-main event will be a heavyweight battle between grapplers Roy Nelson and former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir.

Edgar vs. Maynard III was made possible because the two met on January 1 at UFC 125 in a bout that resulted in a draw. After 25 minutes, neither man was willing to give an inch, and the judges were unable to name a clear-cut winner.

More on this story as it becomes available.
