jon-tuck.jpgA lightweight bout between “The Ultimate Fighter: The Smashes” winner Norman Parke (17-2 MMA, 1-0 UFC) and undefeated Jon Tuck (7-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC) has been pulled from Saturday’s UFC on FOX 7 lineup.

Tuck suffered an undisclosed injury, and with the short timeframe, UFC officials won’t search for a replacement, sources close to the event confirmed with MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com).

UFC on FOX 7 takes place at HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif. The main card airs on FOX following prelims on FX and Facebook.

Parke vs. Tuck was slated for the FX-televised portion of the card. A substitute bout from the Facebook prelims likely will be promoted.

Parke was slated to fight for the first time since December, when he defeated Colin Fletcher to win “TUF.” It was his seventh consecutive victory. Tuck, meanwhile, made his UFC debut in November and defeated Tiequan Zhang, which also marked his seventh straight win.

The latest UFC on FOX 7 card now includes:

MAIN CARD (FOX, 8 p.m. ET)

PRELIMINARY CARD (FX, 5 p.m. ET)

PRELIMINARY CARD (Facebook, 4 p.m. ET)
