Jalin Turner Steps In To Face Brok Weaver on September 12th UFC Show

UPDATE 9/12/20 11:40AM EDT: Article updated to reflect the update on why Camacho pulled out of his fight.

Brok Weaver is now matched with Jalin Turner for Saturday’s UFC card, as his original opponent, Frank Camacho, has been pulled from the show. News of the new pairing was first reported by Cole Shelton of BJPenn.com.

Per the report, the matchup will be held at a catchweight of 165-pounds.

On Saturday, Camacho revealed he tested positive for COVID-19 in an interview with John Hyon Ko.

Turner joins the card just a week after he was scheduled for his own matchup against Thiago Moises the week before. Moises was removed from the fight after testing positive for COVID-19.

Turner’s last fight was a win, defeating Joshua Culibao in the second round with strikes last February.

Weaver made his UFC debut in the same month that Turner last fought, facing Rodrigo Vargas. Being hit with an illegal knee, Weaver was given the win for the fight. His last most recent fight was in May, where he was stopped in the second round with a rear naked choke by Roosevelt Roberts.

There is now 13 fights scheduled for Saturday’s card. Here’s how the show, which is set to happen at the UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, looks like.
