The injury bug bites again.

UFC 144 is starting to feel the sting of injuries as Leonard Garcia is the latest to fall victim, forcing him out of his scheduled fight with Tiequan Zhang.

Sources close to the fighter confirmed to MMAWeekly.com that Garcia would be forced off the card in Japan on Monday.

While the nature of the injuries are unknown, Garcia, who is widely considered one of the toughest fighters in the sport, obviously was banged up enough to have to drop out of the fight.

Well that blows. He needed a win and this very well could have been it.

The thought of Garcia pulling out due to injuries greatly amuses me, as his entire game plan is to take serious punishment over and over again.

This doesn't bother me a bit.

Not a fan of Cowboy Junior or the way he fights.

This times 2. I don't really care for him. I actually thought he was going to be cut after his last fight.

He deserves the spot imo. If he's ready to fight that is.

CHITTT was looking forward to Zhang guillotining Garcia straight to the unemployment line
