Middleweight Changes to UFC 98 Card

After injuries to Yushin Okami (torn MCL) and James Irvin (torn meniscus) rendered the two middleweights unable to compete on May 23rd’s UFC 98 card in Las Vegas, Chael Sonnen and Xavier Foupa-Pokam have stepped up for what should be two exciting bouts at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

Longtime MMA veteran Sonnen will look to stop Dan Miller’s three fight UFC winning streak in one 185-pound matchup, and exciting striker Foupa-Pokam will battle Drew McFedries in a clash of middleweight knockout artists in the other recently confirmed bout.

Tickets for UFC 98, which is headlined by the UFC light heavyweight championship bout between Rashad Evans and Lyoto Machida and the welterweight grudge match between Matt Hughes and Matt Serra, are still on sale.
