UFC Denver: Yair Rodriguez Replacing Frankie Edgar Versus Chan Sung Jung
By FCF Staff
The UFC’s November 10th card in Denver has undergone a substantial change, as Yair Rodriguez is stepping in for Frankie Edgar, and will face Chan Sung Jung in the main event.
Edgar has been forced off the card due to a torn bicep, according to a report from ESPN. The injury will probably not require surgery.
Rodriguez (10-2) will be fighting for the first time since he lost to Edgar, via TKO (doctor stoppage), in May, 2107. Jung’s (14-4), last bout went down in February, 2017, when he knocked out Dennis Bermudez.
Thank you all for the well wishes and support, to say I'm disappointed would be an understatement. I train accordingly and was ready for a battle with KZ. Respect to Yair and Zombie that should be a fun scrap. See you all early next year!
