  UFC 108, the most injury plagued fight card in the promotion’s history, lost another fighter on Saturday. Rory Markham has had to pull out of his scheduled bout with Martin Kampmann.

Markham’s withdrawal was first reported by Sherdog.com’s Greg Savage on his Twitter account. MMAWeekly.com confirmed the news with independent sources.

Markham told MMAWeekly on Saturday evening that he pulled his achilles tendon last month during wrestling practice and re-aggravated it Wednesday. He consulted with a doctor who told him there was a good chance he could tear the tendon and be out of action for up to a year.

"Not to mention, I couldn't walk up stairs," Markham wrote via text message.

 Good lord. This is ridiculous.  I wish all injured fighters a speedy recovery, and hope there aren't any more on this godforsaken card.

It's really unfortunate because Rory wanted this fight so bad and he was working so fucking hard.

Can't mess with an achilles injury.

He should take the fight anyway. He would lose to Kampmannm, injury or not.

hope he has a safe and quick recovery

so first Silva/Belfort was targeted for 108, Andersons surgery prevented that from happening
Lesnar/Carwin was supposed to happen at 108, this is prior to us knowing the extent of Brocks illness
Nogueira/Velasquez scrapped from card due to Nogs staph infection 
Gabriel Gonzaga gets staph, pulls out of Dos Santos fight
Carlos Condit slices hand, pulls out of Daley fight
Tyson Griffin injury, pulls out of Miller fight
Rory Markham has an achilles injury, pulls out of Kampmann fight

am i missing anything?

this card is fucking cursed, lets hope its an exciting event

Kampmann/Ellenberger would be great
