ufc fight night 42

UFC officials have signed Jake Lindsey to make his Octagon debut this June at UFC Fight Night 42 from New Mexico. Lindsey will take the place of Yosdenis Cedeno, who was injured in training.

Set for the Tingley Coliseum in Albuquerque, the event features Benson Henderson against Rustam Khabilov in the headline fight. The majority of the bouts will air on FOX Sports 1, including Tuck-Lindsey in the opening act.

Lindsey (9-0) comes to the UFC after fighting for both Victory FC and Titan FC. He has scored three straight knockout victories, all of which have come in the first round. The 27-year-old is a native of Kansas.

Tuck (7-1) has gone 1-1 since his stint on The Ultimate Fighter 15. He earned a decision over Tiequan Zhang, but was defeated by Norman Parke earlier this year.

Other fights planned include Diego Sanchez vs. Ross Pearson, John Dodson vs. John Moraga and Rafael dos Anjos vs. Jason High. There was no further word on what caused Cedeno’s exit from the card.
