Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) was forced to do some last-minute shuffling for its upcoming UFC on ESPN 11 mixed martial arts (MMA) fight card, set for this Sat. night (June 20, 2020) inside UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada.

That’s because Matt Frevola was pulled from the event after his cornerman and UFC fighter Billy Quarantillo tested positive for coronavirus. As a result, newcomer Justin Jaynes will step in on super-short notice to collide with Frank Camacho, according to MMA Junkie.

Jaynes (15-4) is the winner of four straight, having last competed at Warrior Xtreme Cagefighting (WXC) back in May. That's where “Guitar Hero” stopped veteran slugger James Warfield by way of first-round technical knockout.

As for Camacho (22-8), he’s looking to rebound from his submission loss to Beneil Dariush at UFC Fight Night 162 last October. “The Crank” has dropped three of his last four and is undoubtedly in a must-win situation.

UFC on ESPN 11 is topped by a heavyweight headliner featuring top-ranked bruisers Curtis Blaydes and Alexander Volkov. In addition, 145-pound upstart Shane Burgos collides with veteran knockout artist Josh Emmett in a battle for featherweight supremacy.
