Roger Hollett’s big league debut will have to wait for another day. On Monday, it was announced an undisclosed injury has forced the light heavyweight out of his UFC 152 scrap against Matt Hamill (Pictured).
As we all know full well, the Octagon show waits for no man. Veteran Vladimir Matyushenko has agreed to serve as substitute on September 22nd.
After a year-long hiatus from the game, Hamill decided to cut his retirement short earlier this month. “The Hammer” called it quits after being violently put down by Alexander Gustafsson last August at UFC 133.
Speaking of Gustafsson, Matyushenko was TKO’d by “The Mauler” in his most recent outing. The 41-year-old has been riding the pine since the December defeat.
UFC 152 takes place inside Air Canada Centre in Toronto.
Here is the event’s revised roster:
Simeon Thoresen vs. Seth Baczynski
Dan Miller vs. Sean Pierson
Walel Watson vs. Mitch Gagnon
Marcus Brimage vs. Jim Hettes
Matt Hamill vs. Vladimir Matyushenko
Vinny Magalhaes vs. Igor Pokrajac
Evan Dunham vs. T.J. Grant
Cub Swanson vs. Charles Oliveira
Brian Stann vs. Michael Bisping
Joseph Benavidez vs. Demetrious Johnson (Vacant flyweight championship bout)
