Akihiro Gono has apparently sustained an injury to his hand that requires surgery to repair and will be unable to fight Jon Fitch at UFC 82: “Pride of a Champion” on March 1 from the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio, according to a translation of Gono’s personal blog on this site.

They just can't find anyone for Fitch to fight. Seems either they're getting hurt, turning it down, or something else. Too bad for Gono, his UFC career got off to a good start.

I totally wish Fitch would beat Karo out for a title shot since he's being a such a chicken. But once again we get to watch GSP spank Karo again

You mean watch GSP almost get caught in 5 arm bars/kimuras, and then lay on Karo for the duration?
