William Gomis needs a new opponent for Saturday’s UFC event in Paris after Lucas Almeida withdrew from the card. The Brazilian fighter announced the news on social media. Almeida told MMA Fighting he suffered an injury.
It’s still unclear if the promotion is looking for a replacement to face the French featherweight at the Accor Arena.
Almeida (14-2), a former Jungle Fight champion, was looking to rebound after losing to Pat Sabatini in his most recent octagon appearance this past June, a year after a Fight of the Night win over Michael Trizano.
