Vick Replaces Iaquinta In UFC Lincoln Main Event

Less than a day after his opponent pulling out of the main event of UFC Lincoln, Justin Gaethje has a new opponent.

Al Iaquinta pulled out on Wednesday, for the fight scheduled for August 25th and has been replaced by James Vick.

Vick was set to face Paul Felder on July 14th in Boise, but after Iaquinta took to social media on Wednesday pulling out and blasting Gaethje, the UFC felt the need to change things up.

 

Iaquinta would step in with absurdly short-notice at UFC 223 to face Khabib Nurmagomedov, after original replacement Tony Ferguson was injured on a media tour, as well as Max Holloway pulled on the UFC 223 weigh-ins by the New York State Athletic Commission.
