MMAMania.com has the exclusive on this UFC 98 change:

Despite earlier published reports that Ed Herman had been tapped to replace an injured Yushin Okami at UFC 98, MMAmania.com can now exclusively confirm that former WEC middleweight contender Chael Sonnen will be Dan Miller’s new opponent for the “Evans vs. Machida” event on May 23.

“Thunder” was forced to withdraw from the card after tearing a ligament in his knee, joining a long list of fighters who were removed from the UFC 98 lineup due to injury.

Since its inception, the May 23 event has been a revolving door of UFC talent.
