Bahadurzada, Green off FOX 8 with injuries
Injuries continued to alter the UFC on FOX 8 card on Thursday.
Welterweight Siyar Bahadurzada and lightweight Bobby Green were forced off the card scheduled for Seattle’s KeyArena on July 27 due to injury, FOX Sports has learned.
Bobby Voelker (24-9) will fill in for Bahadurzada --- an injury replacement himself after Tarec Saffiedine was injured --- for a main card bout against Robbie Lawler (20-9).
Voelker, a Strikeforce product, fell in his UFC debut, albeit a very controversial decision to Patrick Cote at UFC 158 in March.
Voelker had been scheduled to fight at the second UFC on FOX Sports 1 event in Indianapolis on Aug. 28.
Green was originally slated to fight Danny Castillo (15-5) on the undercard. Tim Means (18-4) will now step in to fight Castillo.
The moves come a day after the Matt Mitrione vs. Brendan Schaub
heavyweight fight was scrubbed. Mitrione injured himself in
training and the fight will be rescheduled for a later date,
according to MMAFighting.com.
