Lavar Johnson Hurt, Off UFC On Fox 5

Brendan Schaub has been left without a dance partner for UFC on Fox 5, as Lavar Johnson has suffered an injury in training.

“Lavar Johnson is out of the Fox prelims with a pulled groin,” UFC president Dana White posted on Twitter. “He was fighting Brendan Schaub.”

No replacement has been named, as the card takes place December 8 from Seattle. Schaub-Johnson was expected to be the featured bout on the FX-televised prelims.

    Well Brendan, looks like you might not get knocked out, unless you pick a fight at an elementary school or something.
