More injuries are hitting the UFC's December slate, as MMAJunkie.com reports that John Cholish has suffered a groin injury, taking him out of a bout with Yves Edwards at UFC on Fox 5 in two weeks.
The bout was put together when Edwards' UFC on FX 5 opponent, Jeremy Stephens, was incarcerated the day of the event on an outstanding warrant for assault. Edwards remained ready to fight all night as UFC President Dana White tried to get Stephens released by fight night, but it never happened.
Edwards was paid his show money, and the UFC looked to book him as soon as possible. Now, they'll be looking to get him another opponent on short notice with the loss of Cholish.
UFC on Fox 5 takes place at the KeyArena in Seattle, Wash., on Dec. 8, headlined by a Lightweight Championship fight between Benson Henderson and Nate Diaz.
