Move over, UFC 108. The new champ is heading toward the finish line.

And it's probably hobbling down the home stretch on crutches. Next week's UFC 149 pay-per-view, like UFC 108 in January 2010, has been decimated by injuries and fight changes.

UFC president Dana White on Thursday told MMAjunkie.com he believes the card is the most injury-riddled in company history.

If this card was a fight, it would have been a 7 second superman punch KO in terms of brutality

Still more excited for this card than the last few.

But while UFC 108 had near double digits in fight changes, as well, the big names that have had to leave the Calgary card certainly trump 108 in Las Vegas: Aldo, Bisping, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, Mauricio "Shogun" Rua, Thiago Silva, Yoshihiro Akiyama and Thiago Alves, to name a few.


Holy #$%*!
