Gray Maynard Suffers Knee Injury; Joe Lauzon to Face Replacement Jim Miller at UFC 155
has pulled out of his
clash with Joe Lauzon
to a knee injury. Promotion officials announced the news Wednesday,
revealing that Jim Miller
will now face Lauzon in Maynard’s stead.
Headlined by a heavyweight title rematch pitting reigning champion
Santos against former titleholder Cain
Velasquez, UFC 155 takes place Dec. 29 at MGM Grand Garden
Arena in Las Vegas. The evening’s main card, which airs live on
pay-per-view, will also see rising contender Phil Davis do
battle with former light heavyweight champion Forrest
Miller, 29, posted seven consecutive UFC victories from July 2009
to March 2011 before stumbling against future champion Benson
Henderson last summer. The New Jersey native rebounded from the
defeat by submitting the hard-hitting Melvin
Guillard this past January before tapping to a Nate Diaz
guillotine choke on May 5 at UFC on Fox 3.
Lauzon has won three of his last four fights, most recently
submitting ex-WEC titlist Jamie Varner
on Aug. 4. In his 13 UFC appearances, Lauzon has bested the likes
of former lightweight champion Jens Pulver,
Stephens and Guillard. The 28-year-old holds 18 of his 22
victories via submission and has gone the distance just once in his
eight years as a pro.
