UFC 98 Curse Strikes Houston Alexander

Mma_houstong_195_mediumHouston Alexander broke his hand, and has to pull out of his fight at UFC 98:

Houston Alexander broke his hand.  A new light heavyweight opponent for Andre Gusmao at UFC 98 to be announced quickly.

Houston is the latest in a long line of fighters that have been forced out of UFC 98 due to injury.  First Frank Mir pulled out, forcing a change of the main event.  Josh Koscheck, James Irvin, and Yushin Okami all pulled out of their fights, and were replaced by others in their division.

This may be a stroke of luck for Houston, who was probably on his way to being submitted by Gusmao.  It remains a mystery why they keep putting him against black belts.
