Thiago Tavares‘ featherweight debut will have to wait, as injury has forced him off next week’s UFC Fight Night 36 card.

MMAjunkie today confirmed with a source close to the fighter that Tavares (18-5-1 MMA, 8-5-1 UFC) was forced to withdraw from the event and tat UFC officials are now seeking a replacement opponent for promotional newcomer Zubair Tuhugov (15-3 MMA, 0-0 UFC) at UFC Fight Night 36. The source spoke on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss those details.

The night’s main card airs on FOX Sports 1 following prelims that stream on UFC Fight Pass.

Saw this, figured I'd try helping out the fighter in the comments section lobbying for it.

I hope they find someone, Tuhugov looks an exciting fighter to watch
