<p><a href="http://www.ufc.com/news/Illness-Forces-Silva-Off-UFC-198-Card">UFC 198 has taken a major hit</a> only four days away from fight day.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Anderson Silva, who was scheduled to face Uriah Hall on the main card, was forced to withdraw from the bout after falling ill during fight week. Silva was expected to fly from Rio de Janeiro to Curitiba on Tuesday before experiencing severe abdominal pain and being admitted to a hospital where he was diagnosed with acute cholecystitis.</p> <p>Silva underwent successful surgery to remove his gallbladder Wednesday morning. The recovery time for this type of surgery can range anywhere from one to six weeks to be able to return to normal activity. UFC 198 would have marked the former middleweight champion&rsquo;s first fight back in his hometown of Curitiba in nearly fourteen years.</p> <p>The UFC has also announced that Uriah Hall will not be fighting on the card and that a welterweight bout between Warlley Alves and Bryan Barberena will be moved up to the main card.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>UFC 198 will be headlined by a heavyweight title fight between challenger Stipe Miocic and champion Fabricio Werdum. The event will be held at the Arena da Baixada soccer stadium in Curitiba, Brazil.</p>
