Monson Off GFC Card Saturday


Officials from the Gracie Fighting Championships today verified that UFC and Pride veteran Jeff Monson has withdrawn from their event scheduled for Saturday, May 19th in Columbus, Ohio.

According to one Gracie official, Monson separated his shoulder in training and is scheduled for surgery this Thursday.

Monson was originally scheduled to face UFC veteran Wes Sims, but contractual issues kept Sims off the card. The fight was rescheduled against Brian Vanderwalle, but is now off the card due to Monson's injury.
