Does anyone have the full list of fighters that have had to withdraw from UFC 108?

That's quite a task that I saw done here earlier this week...let me see if I can find the link.

Couldn't find it but the ones I know off the top of my head are (in no particular order):

Sherk (cut over R. Eye), Gonzaga(staph infection), Tyson Griffin(undisclosed), Condit(hand), Rampage (not for injury though), Big Nog(staph infection), Brock(intestines thing that started as mono), Rory Markham(knee), Carwin (Knee surgery?), GSP(groin), Machida (hand), A. Silva(elbow)

Some were cancelled, others delayed, others just rumored to begin with....but still.

* Brock Lesnar vs. Shane Carwin for the heavyweight title was moved to this card from UFC 106, but Lesnar’s illness was much more severe than originally thought, thus keeping him out of action for an extended period of time.
* Vitor Belfort vs. Anderson Silva was the next main event, but Anderson Silva has not yet recovered in time from his elbow surgery, so that was scrapped.
* Cain Velasquez vs. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira was the third replacement main event for the card, but that has since been moved to UFC 109 due to Nogueira suffering from yet another staph infection.
* Gabriel Gonzaga was to take on Junior Dos Santos on the main card, but was removed due to staph infection. Dos Santos is now meeting the debuting Gilbert Yvel.
* Carlos Condit was forced to withdraw from his UFC 108 welterweight bout with Paul Daley after he suffered an undisclosed injury in training. Daley now meets Dustin Hazelett.
* Rory Markham was pulled from his fight with Martin Kampmann when he injured his knee, thus not leaving him ample time to train for the bout.
* Tyson Griffin had to withdraw from a fight for the first time in his professional career at UFC 108 against Jim Miller, though his manager says the unknown injury won’t keep him out any longer than January.
* Tyson Griffin’s replacement, Sean Sherk, is the latest to follow suit and withdraw from the Jim Miller bout, due to yet another undisclosed injury.

Really? Crap?

Rashad vs. Thiago
Joe Lauzon vs. Sam Stout
Cole Miller vs. Dan Lauzon
Dos Santos vs. Yvel
Hazelett vs. Daley
Pyle vs. Ellenberger
Plus Ryan Jensen, Martin Kampman & Jim Miller are also on the card

How is that a crap card, by any stretch of the imagination?

Not a crap card at all. i think that all of the high profile fights as of late have spoiled us as MMA fans. Just because there isnt a title fight and a bunch of huge name guys doesnt mean that it isnt a good card. The headliner will end in a KO for sure. Dos Santos vs Yvel is going that way as well. Personaly I cant wait to see Jake Ellenberger again. All the B.J's, and A. Silvas, and GSP's started on undercards or early on in a PPV. Who knows where the next dominant fighter will emerge. 108 is going to be a fine card. WAR THIAGO SILVA!!!!
