Welterweight champion Jorge "Macaco" Patino has injured his knee, and Lucas Pimenta has taken his spot in next week's Legacy Fighting Championship 14 headliner.
He now meets Jeff Rexroad for an interim title.
Legacy FC promoter Mick Maynard confirmed the news with MMAjunkie.com overnight. According to Maynard, Patino tore his torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). A time table for his return isn't known.
