The visa bug strikes again! This time, Russian Rustam Khabilov wasn’t able to obtain a visa in time to meet Danny Castillo in Chicago. Veteran Jim Miller (pictured) has agreed to serve as substitute on July 25.
UFC on FOX 16 takes place inside United Center in Illinois. FOX broadcasts the main card live starting at 8PM ET/5PM PT.
Miller is in desperate need of a win having dropped two straight. He most recently lost a decision to Beneil Dariush in April.
Speaking of possibly fighting for your UFC career, Castillo is also riding a two-fight skid. He’s lost three of his past four bouts. “Last Call” hasn’t been seen since getting knocked out cold by Paul Felder in January.
Here is the show’s updated lineup:
Jessamyn Duke vs. Elizabeth Phillips
Zak Cummings vs. Braga Neto
Gian Villante vs. Tom Lawlor
Ramsey Nijem vs. Erik Koch
Joe Lauzon vs. Takanori Gomi
Danny Castillo vs. Jim Miller
Edson Barboza vs. Paul Felder
Miesha Tate vs. Jessica Eye
Renan Barao vs. TJ Dillashaw (UFC bantamweight champion)
