The UFC on Fox 26 fight card has undergone a number of changes, the Las Vegas-based promotion announced Monday.
As previously reported, Josh Emmett will officially step in for Jose Aldo and face Ricardo Lamas in the co-main event. Meanwhile, Pietro Menga will replace the injured Justin Scoggins and face Tim Elliott in a flyweight bout.
Elsewhere, Darren Stewart has replaced Vitor Miranda and will meet Julian Marquez at middleweight. Finally, Nordine Taleb, who was originally set to lock horns with Sultan Aliev, and Danny Roberts, who was supposed to fight Sheldon Westcott, will now square off against each other due to their opponents’ withdrawals.
UFC on Fox 26 takes place at MTS Place in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada on Dec. 16 and is headlined by a welterweight duel between Robbie Lawler and Rafael dos Anjos. The main card will be televised on the Fox Network, with prelims airing on Fox Sports 1 and UFC Fight Pass.
