Rob Font out, Roman Salazar meets Mitch Gagnon at UFC Fight Night 54
This week’s UFC Fight Night 54 card in Canada has had a late change to the main-card lineup.
An injury has sidelined lightweight Rob Font (11-1 MMA, 1-0 UFC), and promotional newcomer Roman Salazar (9-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC) will take his place on short notice against Mitch Gagnon (11-2 MMA, 3-1 UFC) at UFC Fight Night 54.
Font actually was a replacement earlier this month for Aljamain Sterling, who had to pull out with an injury. That makes Salazar Gagnon’s third opponent.
