Filipino-American Mark Striegl’s UFC debut has been put on hold.
Reputable mixed martial arts outlet MMA Junkie has reported that Striegl has been pulled out by the promotion in his supposed bout against Timur Valiev.
The bout was supposed to take place on Sunday (Philippine time) in the undercard of UFC Fight Night: Munhoz vs. Edgar.
The UFC though has yet to make an official announcement but Russian outlets are already reporting that Valiev will now face Trevin Jones.
Striegl is 18-2 in his pro career.
Just like Striegl, Valiev (16-2) is also making his UFC debut.
