UFC lightweight veteran Frank Camacho was forced to withdraw from his upcoming UFC 263 showdown opposite Matt Frevola following a car crash in Los Angeles, prompting matchmakers to tap LFA import Terrence McKinney for this weekend’s event.
Camacho (22-9) was not seriously hurt, according to the report, but will be forced to wait just a little bit longer before working his way back into the win column. “The Crank” has dropped two straight and four of his last five.
McKinney (10-3), meanwhile, has won three in a row — all by way of knockout — but his UFC debut won’t be an easy one. Despite dropping a recent decision to Arman Tsarukyan, Frevola (8-2-1) is a battle-tested veteran with solid skills in every department.
UFC 263 will be headlined by the middleweight title fight between Israel Adesanya and Marvin Vettori. Prior to that 185-pound collision, Deiveson Figueiredo puts his 125-pound strap on the line against top-ranked flyweight contender Brandon Moreno.
