    Default Ludwig replaces Sherk

    Miller will have to change his strategy again, from a submission wrestler to a gnp wrestler to a striker. But Ludwig should be the easiest to take down of the 3

    The seemingly cursed UFC 108 card took yet another hit on Wednesday as former lightweight champion Sean Sherk was forced off the show with a laceration requiring stitches over his eye. Stepping in to replace him will be Duane "Bang" Ludwig who returns to the UFC for the first time since 2006 to take on Jim Miller in a 155-pound contest.

    Miller has now undergone two opponent changes in less than a week after Tyson Griffin was forced off the card with an injury prior to Sherk stepping in.

    Sherk was forced off the card due to an inch-long cut suffered over his right eye in training. The wound required several stitches that would not come out until at least the middle of next week.

    Neither griffin or sherk are known for their submissions. Both have shown lately that they would rather strike. Both like to gnp on the ground but griffin seems to get into more scrambles. Miller has better pure bjj than both, but i would not expect a submission either way.

    This is definitely the best match up for miller as he has a clear advantage on the ground.

    I said gnp for Sherk (although he's been standing too much). I was thinking of Griffin's knee bar on Edgar
