UFC News: Upcoming MMA event's fight card changed following withdrawal by Chris Fishgold
The next fight card that is set to feature UFC fighters facing each other inside the Octagon is set to take place on 7th December 2019. The card for UFC on ESPN 7 will showcase some of the top fighters from the UFC, with a Heavyweight clash in the main event of epic proportions as Alistair Overeem takes on Jairzinho Rozenstruik.
However, there was one fight that was left without a participant as former Cage Warriors Champion Chris Fishgold had to withdraw from his fight against Billy Quarantillo. Now, that vacancy has been filled by last-minute replacement, Jacob Kilburn.
Jacob Kilburn replaces Chris Fishgold at UFC on ESPN 7
Dana White's Contender Series season 2 competitor Jacob Kilburn is finally going to be making his debut for UFC next weekend when he replaces Chris Fishgold at UFC on ESPN 7 to face Billy Quarantillo. MMA Junkie reported on the same.
Kilburn was more than ready for the fight and made it clear on Twitter.
Kilburn was almost signed by the company in 2018, but a loss to Bobby Moffett saw him unable to join the company.
Billy Quarantillo is heading into this fight on the back of a five-fight win streak and is sure to give Kilburn a run for his money in both of their debuts in the UFC.Published 29 Nov 2019, 16:11 IST
