UFC on Fox 4 is search of a new main event after news broke that Brian Stann will be out of his fight with Hector Lombard due to injury. The UFC is currently looking for a replacement for Lombard’s UFC debut. MMAJunkie first reported the news.
The bout was supposed to be Lombard’s first since vacating his Bellator middleweight title and joining the UFC. The Cuban judoka will likely be lobbying for the highest profile opponent available as he vies for a title-shot.
No word yet on the severity of Stann’s injury at this time. The former Marine officer has won 4 of his last 5 bouts, with the lone loss coming to current number one contender Chael Sonnen.
UFC on Fox 4 takes place August 4 live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.
