DALLAS – Steve Lopez was forced to quit in the opening moments of the second round of his bout with Jim Miller at UFC 103 on Saturday night. While throwing a punch, he displaced his shoulder, leaving him unable to continue.

Jennifer Wenk, UFC Director of Public Relations, at the post-fight press conference said that Lopez dislocated his shoulder during the fight, but that it popped back in at the arena. He did not have to go to the hospital for treatment and was doing fine.

The injury appears to be recurring, as another UFC official indicated that the same thing has happened to Lopez during training.

ha...it was really weird looking. I've never seen it happen from simply punching. Falling on it maybe...

But as he stood there as Miller was announced the winner, it was just hanging there at that weird angle.

Only one way to fix that, followed by 9 months on the shelf.
