Gabe Ruediger has withdrawn from next month's lightweight bout against Paul Kelly at UFC 123 due to a groin injury.

"I've been training with injuries for this whole camp and I've been trying to just work around them," Ruediger explained Sunday evening on his official website. "One injury that has been giving me daily issues was a groin strain. This happened about three weeks ago wrestling. I was wrapping it and just enduring the pain, but Wednesday, I was back to wrestling and my groin tore all the way through. As I laid on the mat I knew it was bad, but it wasn't until Friday that I realized that it would be impossible to be ready for my upcoming bout."

I actually liked Gabe's chances against Kelly.

I don't get why Gabe is being given a fresh start in the UFC at all. Can anyone explain this? It would be one thing if he was impressive like Jesse Taylor and just screwed up his chances.

Six fight win streak since 2009, and his loss in the UFC was to Joe Lauzon on short notice. I'd say that he deserves a second shot.

The replacement is T.J. O'Brien, who was quickly KO'd by Marc Stevens on TUF 12.

Joe Lauzon is a very good opponent, and someone you can't gameplan for in such short time.
