The guy added as a replacement needs a replacement, so that’s how it goes in MMA sometimes.
This is the 3rd opponent for Gagnon, first it was meant to be Aljamain Sterling, but he got injured, and then enters Rob Font, he gets injured as well.
So then enter Roman Salazar, for his debut fight with the UFC. Salazar brings a record of 9-2 into the Octagon with him.
Gagnon who is a 4 fight (3-1) UFC vet enters into October’s event with an overall record of 11-2.
