Ricardo LamasFirst Ricardo Lamas lost his UFC 162 fight against Chan Sung Jung, and now he’s been removed from the fight card altogether.

UFC Tonight reported Lamas’ removal from the fight card on Tuesday night.

With the loss of the bout, the UFC has moved the middleweight showdown between Tim Boetsch and Mark Munoz up to the pay-per-view main card.

The Lamas vs. Jung bout was pulled apart when Anthony Pettis injured his meniscus and had to withdraw from his UFC 163 challenge of featherweight champion Jose Aldo.

Both Lamas and Jung were considered deserving contenders, but UFC officials offered the Aldo bout to Jung, who admittedly felt bad for his former opponent. Jung told UFC Tonight’s Ariel Helwani that he felt Lamas probably should have gotten the shot first, but that he couldn’t pass up the opportunity presented him.

Lamas will still get paid his show money for the fight, even though he is now without a bout and would like to face the winner of Aldo and Jung.

UFC 162 is headline by middleweight champion Anderson Silva putting his belt on the line against Chris Weidman on July 6 in Las Vegas. Jose Aldo will put his featherweight championship up against Jung at UFC 163 on Aug. 3 in Rio de Janeiro.
