Luke Rockhold is the latest top fighter to be hit by the injury bug.

The Strikeforce middleweight champion has pulled out of his upcoming fight against Lorenz Larkin because of a wrist injury, sources close to the event told MMA Fighting's Ariel Helwani.

Rockhold becomes the second big name to drop off the card scheduled for Nov. 3 in Oklahoma City, Okla. Frank Mir dropped out of his anticipated fight against Daniel Cormier because of an injury last month.
