UFC Shenzhen loses main card fight just hours before showtime

New, comments

The UFC Fight Night 157 fight card is down by one bout now that Lu Zhenghong has been removed from his featherweight showdown opposite Movsar Evloev, thanks to an untimely cut suffered during fight week that did not heal well enough to leave him eligible to compete.

UFC.com made the announcement on Friday morning.

Taking over their main card slot will be the welterweight collision between Song Kenan and Derrick Krantz, previously scheduled for the ESPN “Prelims” card. The UFC Fight Night 157 line up will proceed with 11 bouts.
