Shane Del Rosario Out Of UFC 162, Gabriel Gonzaga To Fight Dave Herman Instead On July 6th in Las Vegas, Nevada

Former UFC heavyweight title contender, Gabriel Gonzaga is stepping in for former Strikeforce stand-out, Shane Del Rosario while he is injured to fight against Dave Herman at the UFC 162 card set for July 6th in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The news was revealed by the Las Vegas based promotion sometime last night. It is thought that things are in the early stages but agreements have been made on both sides.

A former heavyweight title challenger, Gonzaga began 2013 with a second-round submission of Ben Rothwell at UFC on FX 7. Herman is on shaky ground after not only testing positive for marijuana metabolites but losing his last three bouts inside the octagon, another loss and he could be cut from the UFC all together.
