Big Nog vs Cain postponed!

These injuries are crazy!!!

Quote:
MANCHESTER, England – The UFC's injury woes continue, and another main event has been scrapped.

A planned UFC 108 bout between heavyweight contenders Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira (32-5-1 MMA, 3-1 UFC) and Cain Velasquez (7-0 MMA, 5-0 UFC) has been called off due to a severe staph infection currently affecting "Big Nog."

UFC president Dana White revealed the news following Saturday's UFC 105 post-event press conference to a small group of reporters.

"[Nogueira] got staph infection, bad, to the point now it's in his bloodstream, and he's probably going to have to be hospitalized and intravenously given the antibiotics," White said.

UFC 108, previously titled "Nogueira vs. Velasquez," is scheduled for Jan. 2 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

White said the recent string of bad luck for the company, which has included injuries to several of the UFC's most prominent fighters, is the worst he's seen in his time at the helm of the promotion.

"It's crazy," White said. "In nine years of being in this business, we haven't had this many injuries in one (full) year."

Despite the setback, White said his company would deliver a solid event come January.

"This is my business; this is what we do," White said. "My job is to put on fights, and we'll get some fights for Jan. 2."

White told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) he is uncertain if Velasquez will remain on the card. With Brock Lesnar on the shelf indefinitely, Shane Carwin would seem to be a natural option. Unfortunately, White said Carwin just underwent knee surgery and would be unavailable for the event.

Man, Lesnar could be done for good, Nog out for a while, Carwin recovering from knee surgery...the HW division has been almost destroyed in one week.

LOL at everyone thinking that Fedor is ducking the UFC HW division. There is no HW division in the UFC anymore. He used his voodooo priest to get revenge on Dana's shit talking.
