Antonio Trocoli to Replace Joilton Lutterbach Against ‘Shara Bullet’ on Short Notice



Saturday’s dynamic UFC on ABC 6 card has seen yet another change.

Joilton Lutterbach (38-9) is out of his fight against Sharabutdin “Shara Bullet” Magomedov, 12-0, which was scheduled to go down in Riyadh on June 22. Fellow Brazilian Antonio Trocoli (12-3) has stepped up to replace Lutterbach against Magomedov on three days’ notice. The change was first announced by Ultimate Fighting Championship CEO Dana White on social media. Lutterbach subsequently revealed that he wasn’t allowed to fight due a substance found in his urine.

This is Magomedov’s third opponent for his sophomore UFC outing after Ihor Potieria, who accepted a short-notice matchup against Michel Pereira at UFC 301. Meanwhile, Trocoli was scheduled to fight Ikram Aliskerov last weekend before the Dagestani agreed to replace Khamzat Chimaev against Robert Whittaker in Saturday’s main event. While this will mark Trocoli’s UFC debut, “Malvado” has been with the promotion for two years and has now been booked to fight for the fourth time. Trocoli is riding a four-fight winning streak and has finished 8 of his 12 career wins.

Meanwhile, a unique striker from Dagestani which is otherwise known for wrestlers, Magomedov is undefeated in 12 pro-outings with 10 knockout wins. “Shara Bullet” earned a unanimous decision over Bruno Silva in his promotional debut at UFC 294 in October 2023.
