Injured, Murilo Bustamante is out of Clube da Luta; Helson "Pé de Chumbo" Heleno steps in to face Yuya Shirai

     The most awaited fighter and star of Clube da Luta, which takes place this Wednesday (20th), at Rio de Janeiro, Murilo Bustamante will not return to the cage this week. By Twitter, the leader and athlete of BTT announced that suffered an injury and did not have time to recover in time to face Yuya Shirai. 
    "Due to an injury suffered last week, which I have been treating since then, unfortunately without success, I will not fight in Clube da Luta, on July 20, at Via Show", he said.
    Former UFC champion, Bustamante would do the first of a probable series of three fights in 2011, and regretted not being able to feel the warmth of the Brazilian fans again.
    "It's a very sad moment for me, because it would be realizing a lifelong dream to return to fight in the rings of Brazil after 14 years of fighting abroad. Thanks to the understanding of the organizers of the event and I apologize to my fans who counted on my presence on the card. But I'll be there in the day honoring and watching the fights of the event that for me it is the biggest and best MMA event ever made in Brazil", he added.
    Delson "Pé de Chumbo Heleno" will now step in to face Yuya Shirai at tonight's event in Rio. Heleno enters the fight with an eight fight winning streak.
