With only three days remaining until the curtain is drawn on UFC Fight Night 75, the roster takes a slight hit.
The bantamweight bout between veteran Norifumi “Kid” Yamamoto (pictured) and
Matt Hobar has been pulled from the lineup. According to the UFC, both fighters have suffered undisclosed injuries.
The 135-pound affair was slated to air on the main card, which will be broadcast live by Fox Sports 1. Diego Brandao vs. Katsunori Kikuno has since been promoted from the preliminary card in its place.
Shinsho Anzai vs. Roger Zapata was slotted as the only UFC Fight Pass matchup, but that has been bumped to the Fox Sports 2 portion of the prelims.
