New, 15 comments

From MMAWeekly:

Gegard Mousasi has been forced to withdraw from a scheduled bout with Rameau Thierry Sokodjou in the semifinals of the Super Hulk Tournament at Dream 11, MMAWeekly.com has been told by multiple sources close to the situation. The Japanese promotion is currently trying to find a replacement opponent for the Oct. 6 event, which also features the promotion’s Featherweight Grand Prix Finals.

The piece goes on to say that the injury possibly occurred during Mousasi's exhibition grappling match with Fedor Emelianenko at the M-1 Global: "Breakthrough" event.  Mousasi was scheduled to face PRIDE and UFC veteran Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou. 

I don't wish injuries on anyone, but this probably couldn't have happened at a better time.  The Sokoudjou fight was a lose/lose scenario for Mousasi in my opinion.
