More Bad News For UFC 85

Found this on the web. Man, nothing seems to be going right for this card.


-----------------------------------------------------------

Is UFC 85 cursed?

Jonathan Goulet recently confirmed to MMA Weekly that he was forced to withdraw his name from his upcoming fight against Paul Kelly at UFC 85 due to health reasons. Goulet just fought at UFC 83 and defeated Kuniyoshi Hironaka in the "fight of the night". However, he made no mention of what kind of injury he is suffering from.

I like Goulet but does anyone else feel that he's ducking Paul? I have a feeling he is becuase I think Paul would have taken him down and either TKO'd Goulet or grinded out a decision.

If he was going to duck him couldn't he have just refused the fight in the first place as he only just fought. Wouldn't have been unreasonable given he had damn good fight at 83. Think Paul would have probly won as well. But accepting a fight you could have easily and reasonably refused cos of the time frame and then ducking out doesnt make much sense

Maybe it was an afterthought.

Afterthought? maybe. But would have thought he would have put some time into thinking about a fight on such short notice. guess we'll never know, unless he says he wants to reschedule it.

Way is it when I fighter has to pull out for health reasons people assume they are ducking him? Almost everytime people bring that up and it turns out to be bull!
