Kyle Daukaus will replace Ian Heinisch in a bout against Brendan Allen on UFC’s June 27th show.
First reported by Daniel Cunningham of Empire Sports Media, Heinisch was pulled from the card due to injury.
Daukaus will be making his UFC debut on June 27th, being a 9-0 professional on the regional scene before.
Allen will look to get his third UFC win, extending his winning streak which is currently at six fights. His most recent win was in February, stopping Tom Breese with strikes in the first round.
The fight would have been a quick turnaround for Heinisch had he compete, as his previous fight was a stoppage win over Gerald Meerschaert on June 6th.
The fight card is currently nine fights and is set to happen at the UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. Headlining the show is a five-round battle between Dustin Poirier and Dan Hooker.
