The circumstances are slightly different, but fans no doubt will be wondering if this really can be happening again.

Just a month after the UFC was forced to cancel a card for the first time in the Zuffa era, now the cancellation bug has bitten Strikeforce. The promotion's Saturday show in Sacramento, Calif., "Strikeforce: Melendez vs. Healy," has been scrapped following an injury to lightweight champion and headliner Gilbert Melendez.

Promotion officials late Sunday night announced the event's cancellation.

"Strikeforce: Melendez vs. Healy" was scheduled for Saturday at Power Balance Pavillion in Sacramento. The event was to air live on Showtime and Showtime Extreme. In the main event, Melendez (21-2 MMA, 11-1 SF) was to meet Pat Healy (28-16 MMA, 6-1 SF), putting his lightweight belt on the line

Fighters need to evaluate their training in the remaining weeks leading up to fights.
