And the hits just keep on coming.
Just weeks before UFC 108 is scheduled to take place, an injury to welterweight Carlos Condit has forced him to withdraw from his co-main event bout with Paul Daley.
MMAJunkie received the news from sources close to the former WEC welterweight champion.
There is no word on what Condit injured, only that it occurred during training.
At this time no replacement has been named.
I wrote about the many injuries that have decimated this card just a few short weeks ago.
Anderson Silva, Brock Lesnar, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira and Shane Carwin have all at one point been scheduled to fight on this card.
With the rash of injuries that UFC 108 has sustained, the UFC has been forced to move the light heavyweight clash between former UFC light heavyweight champion, Rashad Evans and Thiago Silva to main event status.
At this point, Dana White and Joe Silva really need to find an attractive replacement for Condit, especially if they want to capitalize off of Daley's* new-found*fame, which he acquired by knocking out Martin Kampmann at UFC 103.
My suggestion would be to remove Josh Koscheck from his UFC 109 rematch with Paulo Thiago and put him up against Daley.
Koscheck is always down to fight, and is already training. He suffered very little damage in his UFC 106 bout with Anthony Johnson, and should be good to go.
Whomever they choose, the UFC better do it fast, they are losing pay-per-view buys by the minute.
