Derrick Lewis replaces Magomedov, faces Gabriel Gonzaga at UFC Fight Night Zagreb

The injury bug strikes UFC Fight Night Zagreb’s co-main event which takes place on Sunday, April 10 at the Zagreb Arena in Zagreb, Croatia.

#14 Ruslan Magomedov (14-1, 3-0 UFC) and Gabriel Gonzaga (17-10, 12-9 UFC) were scheduled to face off, however, Magomedov suffered a knee injury and must withdraw from the fight. Ruslan posted a photo of an x-ray of his knee on twitter with a message of apology, as well as explaining he can barely walk. Currently riding a 9-fight win streak, as well as emerging victorious in all three of his UFC bouts, Magomedov will be watching from the sidelines while his former opponent Gonzaga, faces a new challenge.

Fellow heavyweight contender, Derrick “The Black Beast” Lewis (14-4, 5-2 UFC) has filled in as a replacement for Magomedov.

Lewis, 31,  a powerful knockout artist from Houston, Texas who has won all of his UFC fights via TKO/KO, will be looking for his third consecutive win inside the Octagon after defeating Damian Grabowski and Viktor Pesta. Lewis’ opponent, Gonzaga, will be the most experienced UFC fighter he’s faced to date.

Gonzaga, 36, will look to stay in the win column by stringing together a couple of wins.  The legendary Brazilian heavyweight ran into a rough stretch of results as he recorded three losses against Mirko Filipovic, Matt Mitrione, and Stipe Miocic before a successful performance against Damian Grabowski, a first-round TKO, in his last outing.

The updated UFC Fight Night 86 fight card is below:

  • Junior Dos Santos vs. Ben Rothwell
  • Gabriel Gonzaga vs. Derrick Lewis
  • Francis Ngannou vs. Bojan Mihajlovic
  • Timothy Johnson vs. Marcin Tybura
  • Jan Blachowicz vs. Igor Pokrajac
  • Mairbek Taisumov vs. Damir Hadzovic
  • Zak Cummings vs. Nicolas Dalby
  • Ian Entwistle vs. Alejandro Perez
  • Filip Pejic vs. Damian Stasiak
  • Robert Whiteford vs. Lucas Martins
  • Jared Cannonier vs. Cyril Asker
  • Bojan Velickovic vs. Alessio Di Chirico
  • Maryna Moroz vs. Cristina Stanciu

Bellator 185- How to Watch, Times and Fight Card

Published

on

Bellator is once again heading to Mohegan Sun in Uncasville Connecticut, and this time they are bringing with them one of the most anticipated former UFC fighter turned Bellator stars’ debut. Gegard Mousasi will be making his first appearance in the Bellator cage against a former Bellator champion in Alexander Shlemenko. Although this event has lost some of its star power over the last several weeks, it is still stacked and you can bet that the main event will bring some fireworks.

Earlier in the month, it was announced that King Mo had suffered an injury that had forced him out of his co-main event fight with former middleweight champion Liam McGeary. Bellator worked quickly to secure a replacement opponent for McGeary in Bubba McDaniels. Unfortunately for McDaniels and the fans alike, McGeary had later suffered an injury of his own and the fight was removed from the card.

This left a spot open in the co-main event slot, which would be filled by a welterweight matchup between Brennan Ward and David Rickels. Just four days out from the fight, Bellator announced that Ward had also become injured and the fight has been removed from the card as well. The main card has been shuffled around and the welterweight bout between Neiman Gracie and Zak Bucia will now serve as the co-main event.
