The UFC 98 fight card has been bitten again by the injury bug.

After already losing Josh Koscheck and James Irvin to injuries, the May 23 fight card has now lost middleweight contender Yushin Okami (23-4 MMA, 7-1 UFC), who was slated to fight fast-rising Dan Miller (11-1 MMA, 3-0 UFC) on the televised portion of the main card.

Okami suffered a torn ligament, but UFC officials have promised "an awesome replacement challenger" who will take his place.

Dammit, i wanted to see Okami in action again! This card is losing more and more of the little star power it had.

The replacement is Ed Herman, which I would argue isn't so awesome, but it's a solid replacement between two very similar styles.

was there no one else available besides Ed Herman, this fight was potentially going to turn Miller into a serious competitor and now???nothing
Quarry-would be great whats leites up to-you would think this guy would want to redeem himself asap
