The UFC Fight Night show in Ireland on July 19th has a new main event. The featherweight grudge match between Conor McGregor and Cole Miller will have to wait, as Miller has been ruled out of the bout. He will be replaced by TUF winner Diego Brandao. Fox Sports reporter Damon Martin broke the news on Twitter:
Breaking - Cole Miller OUT of his fight against Conor McGregor - Diego Brandao steps in for the new main event in Dublin #UFC— Damon Martin (@DamonMartin) June 3, 2014
Brandao (18-9), the winner of season fourteen of The Ultimate Fighter, had been scheduled to compete at the TUF Brazil 3 Finale over the weekend but was forced out of his bout with an injury shortly beforehand. Clearly the injury wasn't serious though, and he'll be back in the cage under two months later. Brandao is coming off a loss to Dustin Poirier at UFC 168, and is 4-2 in the UFC overall.
McGregor (14-2, 2-0 UFC) has been sidelined for 10 months with a serious knee injury. This will be his first UFC bout in his home country, hence the main event slot.
