Frank Camacho Involved In Car Crash, Replaced In UFC 263 Matchup Against Matt Frevola

Frank Camacho has been pulled from UFC’s June 12th fight against Matt Frevola after being involved in a car crash, per a report from Matthew Wells, John Morgan and Nolan King of MMA Junkie.

The report says that Camacho’s car accident took place in Los Angeles, California, USA recently. The 32-year-old did not suffer any “serious or life-threatening” injuries from the incident.

Camacho was set to face Frevola as part of UFC 263, which is taking place at the Gila River Arena in Glendale, Arizona, USA. A replacement has already been found for him, as LFA vet Terrance McKinney will step in to take the bout.

McKinney is taking the fight just days after winning an LFA main event earlier this month against Michael Irizarry. The fast-paced bout finished in the second minute, as he knocked him out with punches from full guard.

The bout was McKinney’s third consecutive first-round stoppage win.

Frevola will be looking to bounce back from a decision loss he took to Arman Tsarukyan earlier this year.
