UFC Middleweight Court McGee

Kelvin Gastelum announced Tuesday morning that a torn knee has forced him out of his December 14 scrap against Court McGee (pictured). Fast forward just 10 hours and the UFC has already located a replacement for Gastelum.

Ryan LaFlare will make a quick turnaround from this past Saturday’s unanimous decision victory over Santiago Ponzinibbio to fight McGee at UFC on FOX 9.

LaFlare is unbeaten through nine professional fights, with his last two coming inside the Octagon.

McGee has posted a perfect 2-0 mark since dropping to the welterweight division. “The Crusher” posted a split decision win over Robert Whittaker at UFC Fight Night 27.

The 170-pound affair will appear in the prelims.

UFC on FOX 9 takes place inside Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento, California.

FOX will broadcast the main card live starting at 8PM ET/5PM PT.

Here is the show’s revised roster:

Darren Uyenoyama vs. John Moraga

Cody McKenzie vs. Sam Stout

Roger Bowling vs. Abel Truji

Pat Healy vs. Bobby Green

Court McGee vs. Ryan LaFlare

Mac Danzig vs. Joe Lauzon

Danny Castillo vs. Edson Barboza

John Dodson vs. Scott Jorgensen

Chad Mendes vs. Nik Lentz

Carlos Condit vs. Matt Brown

Urijah Faber vs. Michael McDonald

Joseph Benavidez vs. Demetrious Johnson (UFC flyweight champion)
