UFC newcomer John Gunderson (22-6 MMA, 0-0 UFC) replaces Sean Sherk (33-4-1 MMA, 7-4 UFC) and meets fellow lightweight Rafaello Oliveira (9-2 MMA, 0-1 UFC) next month at UFC 108.
MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) learned of the change overnight. The bout was first reported by MMAWeekly.com.
UFC 108, a fight card ravaged by injuries, takes place Jan. 2 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas and airs on pay-per-view (main card) and Spike TV (two preliminary card bouts). Gunderson vs. Oliviera is part of the night's preliminary card, though it's unlikely to be part of the Spike TV broadcast.
The UFC has not officially announced the fight.

Hopefully a much better fight for 'Tractor' and he can get the 'W'

This card is getting to the point where the UFC might have to do a random draw among the fans to fill the undercard.
If there was ever a time to scrap a card and strengthen some of their other cards this is it.
