Lavar Johnson is out of the FOX prelims with a pulled groin. He was fighting Brendan Shcaub.

Johnson was set to fight Brendan Schaub who last fought at UFC 145 and suffered a knockout loss at the hands of Ben Rothwell. Prior to that loss, Schaub had lost to Minotauro Nogueira at UFC 134.
With a little under a week and a half to go until the December 8 fight card, it’ll be interesting to see if anyone will step up to face Schaub, who’s desperately in need of a win to remain relevant with the organization.
UFC on FOX 5 will take place at Seattle’s Key Arena and will feature a battle for the UFC Lightweight Championship between Benson Henderson and Nate Diaz. Lavar Johnson vs Brendan Schaub was supposed to be the main event of the FX preliminary card.
