Shoulder Injury Forces Pascal Krauss Out of UFC 138 Fight With John Hathaway

German prospect, and 10-0 fighter, Pascal Krauss has blew out his shoulder in training camp and has been forced to withdraw from his UFC 138 bout with John Hathaway at the National Indoor Arena in Birmingham, England on November 5th, 2011.

Krauss, speaking via Sherdog.com, said::

“As you can imagine I’m absolutely devastated by wrecking my shoulder again, as well as the news that I won’t be able to fight John. I never had a serious injury in more than 10 years of competing in various combat sports. Training and competing is my passion. Having to sit out for eight months was a total nightmare and the prospect of fighting again this fall was my only silver lining on the horizon. Being on the shelf again now is just disheartening. I just hope I can make a complete recovery one more time and come back an even stronger Panzer in 2012!”
