UFC on FX 8: Manny Gamburyan out, Nik Lentz in against Hacran Dias

Ron Chenoy-US PRESSWIRE

UFC Featherweight Nik Lentz steps in for an injured Manny Gamburyan against Hacran Diaz at UFC on FX 8: Belfort vs. Rockhold on May 18 in Brazil.

The ol' injury bug has bitten UFC Featherweight Manny Gamburyan once again, forcing him to pull out of his UFC on FX 8: Belfort vs. Rockhold bout with Hacran Dias. Nik Lentz will step in to face Dias. UFC officials announced the news yesterday.

This is the second time this year that the 31-year-old Gamburyan has been forced to pull out of a scheduled UFC bout. He was forced to withdraw from a fight against Chad Mendes at UFC 158 in February with multiple injuries.

Dias is 21-1-1, with a win over Yuri Alcantara at UFC 147 in his Octagon debut. Lentz is 2-0 since moving down to featherweight last year, with wins over Eiji Mitsuoka and Diego Nunes.
