Injury forces Goulet to withdraw from UFC 100

Canadian welterweight Jonathan Goulet (22-10-1) has been forced to withdraw from his bout against Dong Hyun Kim on the undercard of UFC 100 on July 11 due to a dislocated shoulder. Another Candian fighter, Nova Scotia’s T.J. Grant, will replace Goulet.

Goulet, who suffered a first-round knockout to Mike Swick in his last fight, injured the shoulder while training.

It’s a big opportunity for Grant (14-2-0), who won his UFC debut in April with a split decision win over Ryo Chonan at UFC 97. Posting a win over Kim (11-0-1, 1 NC) at UFC 100 would catapult Grant in the welterweight division.

Grant is a purple belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu under Jorge Gurgel. Kim, a South Korea native, is a fourth degree black belt in judo.
