Francimar Barroso out at UFC Fight Night 42, promotion seeks opponent for Patrick Cummins

The man who famously served as a late replacement is now in need of someone to step in against him.

MMAjunkie has learned that Francimar Barroso (16-5 MMA, 1-1 UFC) has been forced to withdraw from June’s UFC Fight Night 42 event, and the promotion now needs a light heavyweight to step in against Patrick Cummins (4-1 MMA, 0-1 UFC).

Featuring a lightweight matchup of Benson Henderson vs. Rustam Khabilov, UFC Fight Night 42 takes place at Tingley Coliseum in Albuquerque, N.M. The six-fight main card airs live on FOX Sports 1 following prelims that air on the same channel and stream on UFC Fight Pass.

Cummins made a short-notice and much-heralded UFC debut in February against his onetime wrestling training partner, Daniel Cormier, in the co-main event of UFC 170 in Las Vegas. Despite plenty of heat before the fight, Cummins, a massive underdog, was shut down by Cormier in just 79 seconds. That was his first MMA loss after starting his career with four first-round stoppages, including a win for Strikeforce in his pro debut.

Barroso had been looking to get back on track, as well, after having a four-fight winning streak snapped by Hans Stringer at UFC Fight Night 38 in March. The split-decision setback was his first UFC loss after debuting with a decision win over Ednaldo Oliveira at UFC 163 this past August. All told, he has 14 of his 16 wins by stoppage.

A timetable for Barroso’s return wasn’t immediately established.
