An injury has forced a change to one of the bouts at next week’s UFC on FUEL TV 6 as Kyung Ho Kang has pulled out of his fight against Alex Caceres and Motonobu Tezuka steps in for Kang.
UFC officials announced the change today and the new fight will take place on the main card, which will air next Saturday on FUEL TV.
Tezuka (19-4) will be making his UFC debut in this fight and he is currently on a three fight winning streak. His last nine fights have come in Pancrase, which he went 8-1.
Caceres (7-5) has gone 2-3 since entering the UFC through “The Ultimate Fighter” and has won two of his last three fights. In his last fight, he defeated Damacio Page at UFC on FUEL TV 4 by submission and it was his four career win by submission.
UFC on FUEL TV 6 takes place next Saturday in Macao, China and the main card will be shown live in the United States at 9 a.m. ET on FUEL TV with the fight card being headlined by a middleweight bout between Rich Franklin and Cung Le.
