UFC 146 continues to see bouts changed as the one bout left on the card that had not been changed now has been.
Mark Hunt has been forced out of his UFC 146 bout with Stefan Struve due to injury. Hunt dropped the news via his Twitter account that he injured his posterior cruciate ligament, one of the four major ligaments of the knee.
Lavar Johnson, who fought less than two weeks ago at UFC on FOX has been pegged as a replacement.
â€œI heard last night there was a chance I could get this fight and I accepted right away," said Johnson. "You donâ€™t get chances like this too much in life, so when you are lucky, you got to make the most of it. I took one week off after last fight [May 5] and then went back to the gym."
