UFC officials have announced a bout for the upcoming UFC Fight Night event that’s set for June 28 at the AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas. Rani Yahya and Johnny Bedford will meet in a rematch of their bout from UFC Fight Night 39 last week. The original bout ended in a no contest after the referee called a stop to the bout just 39 seconds into the fight after an accidental clash of heads.
The UFC announced that former WEC champion Eddie Wineland had to pull out of his bout with Johnny Bedford due to an injury a few days ago. The UFC website is now reporting that UFC newcomer and Canadian bantamweight Mitch Gagnon will replace Wineland on the card and face Bedford on January 28th, in Chicago.
The final episode of the season ends with fireworks in both semifinal bouts, as Team Miller’s John Dodson advances to the bantamweight final, while Diego Brandao of Team Bisping moves on to the featherweight final.
