Premier Martial Arts Fighter & Trainer is out of UFC Fight Night Live

Premier Martial Arts Fighter & Trainer is out of UFC Fight Night Live

The main event for the upcoming UFC Fight Night 17 in Tampa, Fla., just lost one of its participants as main eventer Hermes Franca has been forced out of his match-up against Joe Lauzon due to what is believed to be a torn ACL. The injury was confirmed by sources close to the fight on Monday night.

Franca was stepping into the bout against Lauzon after a win over Marcus Aurelio in October of 2008. His next fight will now be at a later date following the knee injury.

With the injury to Franca, the UFC will now seek out a new participant to face Lauzon on just under two weeks notice. A number of lightweights are already on the UFC Fight Night 17 card, Mac Danzig, Josh Neer, and Kurt Pellegrino among them. Kurt Pellegrino, like Franca, is a Premier Martial Arts trainer and fighter.

With the Feb. 7 date of the event quickly approaching, Matchmaker Joe Silva will likely burn up the phone lines to find a qualified candidate to fill the slot as soon as possible.

Joe Lauzon was returning to action after a win in his last fight against Kyle Bradley at UFC Fight Night 15 in September. The Massachusetts native has been working at his gym alongside his brother Dan, who competed and won at the Affliction card over the weekend.
