UFC.com announced today that a knee injury has forced Mark Coleman off the UFC 87 card in Minnesota on August 9, though Brock Lesnar will remain to face an as of yet unnamed opponent. They also announced the night’s main event, a welterweight championship match between title-holder Georges St. Pierre and top contender Jon Fitch. Also on the card, of course, will be Kenny Florian taking on Roger Huerta.
While the addition of the GSP-Fitch title fight isn’t exactly a surprise, it should make for an interesting fight and it’s encouraging to see that the UFC isn’t keeping GSP on the bench for too long following his win over Matt Serra.
As for the loss of Coleman, we won’t suggest that his knee injury isn’t legitimate, but, well, you saw this video we posted earlier, right?
