The injury plagued UFC 222 event has just received another setback.
With the original headliner between Max Holloway and Frankie Edgar completely off, the UFC worked diligently to keep the fight card intact, and not force a cancellation.
They went forward with plans to book a bantamweight title fight rematch between Cody Garbrandt and TJ Dillashaw, but after getting verbal agreements in place, that bout fell through as well.
In the end, the world’s largest Mixed Martial Arts promotion was able to get a UFC newcomer to step up and face Cris Cyborg in the night’s main event.
Now, fan favorite lightweight Bobby “King” Green has been pushed off the event as well, also due to injury.
Green was scheduled to face the rising UFC lightweight in Beneil Dariush, and now that fight is off.
The UFC is currently seeking a replacement for Green, but with the schedule so thin, and the roster absent notable talent, his removal will be felt.
Stay tuned, we will update on Green’s replacement once one has been booked.
UFC 222 takes place on March 3, from the T-Mobile arena in Las Vegas. The night’s main card airs live on pay-per-view.
