Gabriel Gonzaga Steps In To Fight Dave Herman At UFC 162

The UFC have announced a change to UFC 162. Shane del Rosario has been forced out of his heavyweight bout with Dave Herman because of an injury he sustained in training. Officials announced that del Rosario will be replaced by Gabriel Gonzaga. Herman is returning to the octagon after serving a suspension for testing positive for marijuana following his UFC 153 loss to Antônio Rodrigo Nogueira, and with three losses in a row, he is clearly in a must win situation. Gonzaga is coming off of a first round loss to Travis Browne at the TUF 17 Finale.

UFC 162: Silva Vs Weidman takes places July 6 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The main event will feature reigning Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva’s 11th title defense against challenger Chris Weidman.
