Pascal Krauss Out of UFC 138 Fight with John Hathaway

Pascal KraussUndefeated German prospect Pascal Krauss has been forced to withdraw from his UFC 138 fight against fellow welterweight John Hathaway after “Panzer” recently suffered a shoulder injury that will sideline him for six to eight weeks ahead of the November 5 event in Birmingham, England.

“Having to sit out for eight months was a total nightmare and the prospect of fighting again this fall was my only silver lining on the horizon,” Krauss told Sherdog. “Being on the shelf again now is just disheartening. I just hope I can make a complete recovery one more time and come back an even stronger Panzer in 2012!”

Krauss (10-0) made his Octagon debut with a unanimous decision over Mark Scanlon in November at UFC 122 in his native Germany to improve to 10-0.

The UFC is expected to find a replacement to face Hathaway on the UFC 138 fight card. Hathaway (15-1) rebounded from his first career loss to Mike Pyle with a split decision over Kris McCray in March.

UFC 138 airs via tape-delay on Spike TV and his headlined by the first five-round non-title fight between middleweights Chris Leben and Mark Munoz.
