Houston Alexander is the latest to opt out of UFC 98 because of injury, a broken hand. Frank Mir, Josh Koscheck, Yushin Okami and Jamies Irvin have all pulled out of the May 23rd event because of a training injury. The UFC is now scrambling to find an opponent for Andre Gusmao.
So is UFC 98 cursed? Five fighters having to drop out, including one of the main event fighters, is a little crazy. Maybe the UFC should bring a goat into MGM Grand Garden Arena before the show begins.
