According to mmaweekly, Jason day had to withdraw from the fight due to an injury, I say the best matchup would be Matt Riddle from T.U.F 7 , that would be a great match and I would take riddle by tko in 2nd rd

What do you think

most of the decent fighters in the mw division are tied up so i wouldn't be surprised to see lambert get a ufc newcomer (they ufc loves "hazing" octagon virgins with short training notices)
i'm curious to see how lambert's physique and skill set will do at 185 so i hope he gets game competition as opposed to a can

My first thought was exactly the same. The UFC will only be able to get a UFC virgin to sacrifice on such short notice. They will fill out the card, but who knows if the fight will be any good.

Surely there's a ex-TUF fighter out there somewhere who has kept at it, patiently waiting for the call.

You know I wouldn't mind watching that.

He could fight Ed Herman or Justin Levens. I think Jason should fight Levens, it would be a good test for him.

i doubt rivera, his daughter just died. i think they will find a replacement and it will be probably somebody we haven't heard of.

I'm sure Eastman is out of the UFC, plus he has an upcoming fight with Dennis Kang.

Yeah, I saw that too. Very unusual to fight on back-to-back cards, especially after losing an exhausting 3 rounder.... but if he can get him on the ground he's got a shot at it, especially if Lambert's gas tank is taxed due to the cut like Swick and Vera were.

Jason's out... who's going to fight Jason now? Jason. Jason Jason Jason.
