Tuck faces new opponent for Fight Night Manila 2


Due to an injury, Mehdi Baghdad, who was set to face Jon “Super Saiyan” Tuck, will be replaced by Alex “The Hulk” Volkanovski (13-1-0, fighting out of Phuket, Thailand) in UFC Fight Night Manila 2: Lamas vs. Penn. Both fighters have verbally agreed to the new match up according to the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

Volkanovski is widely considered to become the number one-ranked pound-for-pound fighter from Australia. The reigning Pacific Xtreme Combat Lightweight champion is currently on a ten-fight winning streak, nine of which coming either via knockout or submission. He is excited to put on a show for fight fans as he makes his UFC debut and will be looking for another finish using his trademark overhand right.

UFC Fight Night Manila 2 will take place on Saturday, October 15 at the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.

Other announced bouts for the card are:
