ufc fight night 76

With just over a week to go, and difficulties in trying to get a new fighter into a different country, UFC officials have been forced to remove Ben Rothwell from next Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 76 event.

Rothwell was scheduled to meet Stipe Miocic in the co-main event, but an injury suffered by Miocic scrapped the bout.

The main card, which airs on UFC Fight Pass from the 3Arena in Dublin, Ireland, will now include lightweights Norman Parke and Reza Madadi.

All 11 planned fights air on the digital streaming service, including a main event between Dustin Poirier and Joseph Duffy.
