Jonathan Goulet unable to take UFC 97 fight vs. Tamdan McCrory


FiveOuncesofPain.com has learned that Canadian welterweight Jonathan “The Road Warrior” Goulet has turned down his proposed bout with Tamdan McCrory after he was unable to gain medical clearance for his injured knee.

A few weeks ago, FiveOuncesofPain.com broke news that Goulet was offered a fight with McCrory but the bout hinged on the fact that Goulet needed to receive medical clearance. Goulet suffered the knee injury last month during his first round TKO loss to Mike Swick at “UFC Fight for the Troops.”

Goulet, a native of Victoriaville, Quebec, possesses a mixed martial arts record of 22-10. Goulet holds UFC victories over Jay Hieron, Luke Cummo, Paul Georgieff, and Kuniyoshi Hironaka.

McCrory, a native of Courtland, New York, possesses a mixed martial arts record of 10-2. McCrory holds UFC victories over Pete Spratt and Luke Cummo.
