UFC 162 Update: Gabriel Gonzaga In, Shane Del Rosario Out Vs. Dave Herman

In the midst of adding several fights to upcoming cards, UFC officials were hit with an injury on Friday.

Shane del Rosario has been forced to withdraw from a planned UFC 162: Silva vs. Weidman bout with Dave Herman. In his place will step Gabriel Gonzaga.

The card goes down July 7 from Las Vegas. UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva defends his title against Chris Weidman in the main event.

Gonzaga (14-7) had his three-fight win streak snapped by Travis Browne earlier this year. He is a former No. 1 contender to the UFC heavyweight title.

Herman (21-5) is returning after a suspension for a failed post-fight drug test. He has lost three straight, all via finish, to Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, Roy Nelson and Stefan Struve.
