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.

That would be a perfect opponent.

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.
