Gonzaga, Dunham out of UFC 146, Herman, Varner in

source: ufc

The injury bug has bitten again, and this time its target was UFC 146, which underwent two more changes today.

After much reshuffling on the all-heavyweight main card, Roy "Big Country" Nelson now has his third opponent since the event was announced. Gabriel Gonzaga is out with an injury, just 8 days after being slotted to fight Nelson after Nelson's original opponent, Bigfoot Silva, was plucked for another bout. Hirsute heavyweight Dave Herman will now fill in against the TUF 10 winner.

On the undercard, lightweight contender Evan Dunham has also been injured, forcing him to withdraw from his much-anticipated bout against Edson Barboza. The change opens the door for the Zuffa return of former WEC champion Jamie Varner. Varner has racked up three impressive wins in the last year, all finishes in under two minutes.

I actually thought Dunham could beat Barboza or give him some problems.... Varner is going to get ko'd in the 2nd and Herman is gonna get murked as well.

Yay, Herman gets taken down and crucifix'd out. Lame match up. Do they keep forgetting Nelson has an elite ground game?

What are you talking about? DW is evil Darth Vader and there's nothing commendable about the guy... Or, so I keep hearing from the Peanut Gallery...

When's the last time Dunham fought? The Guillard fight? Feels like forever.Also the last card they had in Philly was probably the most cursed card in the last few years. Brutal.
