The UFC 98 fight card has been bitten again by the injury bug.

After already losing Josh Koscheck and James Irvin to injuries, the May 23 fight card has now lost middleweight contender Yushin Okami (23-4 MMA, 7-1 UFC), who was slated to fight fast-rising Dan Miller (11-1 MMA, 3-0 UFC) on the televised portion of the main card.

Okami suffered a torn ligament, but UFC officials have promised "an awesome replacement challenger" who will take his place. 

Well I take back what I had said about Okami being a future champ, he can't even stay healthy, the replacement looks to be Ed Herman.
