Anthony “Rumble” Johnson (8-3) has had to pull out of his highly anticipated March 21 “UFC on Versus” bout with John “Doomsday” Howard (13-4) due to a knee injury. Pro MMA Now (www.prommanow.com) was notified of Johnson’s injury this evening from an associate who spoke directly to Johnson’s manager.

Howard will have fun with this....will add more fuel to the fire.

sucks though, I wanted to see this fight go down...maybe they can set up Howard vs Lennox or something until then.

Guys shouldn't be getting hurt in training all the time. I understand a fluke thing from time to time, but there has been WAY too many guys getting hurt lately. Guys have to be going way too hard in training. I understand that they want to go hard to be prepared, but what does it matter if you don't fight because you are hurt.

that is too bad, I like Howard as a up n comer, and we all know Rumble is a good striker with serious ko power.

I hope they give doomsday a good mattchup

I'm guessing most of these injuries are caused by being too macho while sparring.
