An undisclosed injury has forced Derrick Lewis off the card at UFC on FOX Sports 1 2, and instead of looking for a replacement for Nandor Guelmino, UFC officials have decided to scratch the bout completely. In it’s place will be a lightweight matchup between Roger Bowling and Abel Trujillo.
Roger Bowling is likely on the chopping block with a loss, currently on a two-fight losing streak in his career. He made his UFC debut against Anthony Njokuani at UFC on FOX 7, suffering a second round knockout loss. Bowling amassed a 4-3 record during his time with Strikeforce from May 2010 to August 2012.
Even though he tried valiantly, Abel Trujillo couldn’t handle the constant pressure of Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 160, ultimately dropping a one-sided unanimous decision against the Russian. The loss snapped a five-fight win streak dating back to August of 2011, which included his second round TKO victory over Marcus LeVesseur in his UFC debut.
