TORONTO -- A pulled groin has forced heavyweight Lavar Johnson to pull out of his Dec. 8 UFC fight with Brendan Schaub.

The two were slated to meet on a televised card in Seattle.

The UFC said there won't be a replacement bout, meaning the card will go ahead with 12 fights.

John Cholish, Bryan Caraway, T.J. Dillashaw, Eddie Yagin and Rafaello Oliveira have already withdrawn from the card due to injury.
