BJ Penn injured; out of UFC Manila main event

BJ PENN

UFC Manila has taken a major hit as BJ Penn has withdrawn from the main event due to injury.

MMAJunkie reported this morning that a source with knowledge of the booking says that Penn has suffered an injury in training and will not be able to face Ricardo Lamas on the card scheduled for October 15.

The report also states that it is “unclear” if the UFC will be able to find a replacement opponent for Lamas.

The UFC has yet to make an official announcement regarding the matter.

UFC Fight Night Manila is set for the SM MOA Arena in Pasay City, Philippines.
