Unable to find a replacement opponent for Ricardo Lamas, the UFC has removed the featherweight contender from the July 6th PPV.

Pretty fucking pissed that once again
During a 4th of July card which is the most expensive tickets of any Ufc card during the year. The Ufc not only doesn't give a 13 bout card but also pulls fighters off the card not due to injury.

Too bad Lamas got pulled, been a big fan since his UFC debut.
Ya agree with Budge, still an awesome card and imo Boetsch/Munoz should have been on the main card in the first place and I would say is sleeper for FOTN

I hope you're right. IMO Boetch and Munoz are too evenly matched. I think it's going to turn into an ugly and boring boxing match.

The Kennedy v Gracie fight could be junk too if Gracie can't tap him.

It would be epic if Kennedy submitted Gracie though.

Korean Zombie is going to get mauled especially with the year layoff or whatever.

Yeah, it's a shame Lamas doesn't have a cool nickname. I think he'd put up a much better fight.
