There’s been a change of plans in the Anthony Pettis vs. Joe Lauzon fight. They’re still fighting, but not at UFC 143 as previously expected. Instead they’re going to take the long flight across the Pacific to face off at UFC 144 in Japan.
The UFC confirmed the news with MMA Fighting earlier this evening.
With that addition the Japan currently looks like this:
- Frankie Edgar vs. Ben Henderson
- Yushin Okami vs. Tim Boetsch
- Yoshihiro Akiyama vs. Jake Shields
- Anthony Pettis vs. Joe Lauzon
