Staph Infection Forces Gabriel Gonzaga Withdrawal From UFC 108

Gabriel Gonzaga
The rash of injuries and illness that has plagued the UFC recently, and forced the alteration of many of their scheduled cards continues. Today we find out that UFC heavyweight Gabriel Gonzaga has been forced to withdraw from a scheduled UFC 108 bout against Junior dos Santos, according to a report from Steve Cofield.

Gonzaga was last in action with a UFC 102 TKO victory over Chris Tuchscherer, bouncing back from a UFC 96 loss to Shane Carwin.

It is unclear what will happen with dos Santos fighting on the card, since the heavyweight division of the UFC has been especially hard hit lately. Cofield writes that the UFC will wait until after Thanksgiving before beginning the process of selecting a replacement for Gonzaga.
