Pascal Krauss Off Of UFC 138 With Shoulder Injury

Unbeaten German prospect Pascal Krauss has pulled out of his November-scheduled bout against John Hathaway with a shoulder injury, just a month after fully rehabbing a sidelining injury to his opposite shoulder.

The frustrated welterweight spoke with today about the injury and his withdrawal from the UFC 138 fight card and what would have been his second octagon appearance.

"As you can imagine I'm absolutely devastated by wrecking my shoulder again, as well as the news that I won't be able to fight John," said Krauss. "I never had a serious injury in more than 10 years of competing in various combat sports. Training and competing is my passion. Having to sit out for eight months was a total nightmare and the prospect of fighting again this fall was my only silver lining on the horizon. Being on the shelf again now is just disheartening. I just hope I can make a complete recovery one more time and come back an even stronger Panzer in 2012!"

The 24-year-old West German native revealed that the injury won't require surgery, but that the necessary rehab will infringe upon his training for the bout.

Sporting a record of 10-0, Pascal made good on his UFC debut back in November of 2010, taking out Mark Scanlon via unanimous decision at UFC 122; that performance earned him Fight of the Night.

No word yet on a replacement opponent for John Hathaway, but as of now, the British prospect keeps his spot on the card, which is to take place on November 5 at the LG Arena in Birmingham, England.
There is no way Hathaway is scratched from the card, but who will the replacement be?

Didn't really rate that as a fight anyways. Hopefully Hathaway can get a fight with someone that will propel him up the ladder if he wins.

Duane Ludwig coming off a good win, Brian Ebersole at a stretch?

Ebersole or Ludwig, the UFC shouldn't even dare think about putting Hathaway in there with Rocha.
