Robbie Lawler-Bobby Voelker, Danny Castillo-Tim Means meeting at UFC on FOX 8

Robbie Lawler-Bobby Voelker, Danny Castillo-Tim Means meeting at UFC on FOX 8

The lineup for UFC on FOX 8 took a few hits today thanks to the infamous injury bug. In addition to losing a bout between Brendan Schaub-Matt Mitrione and seeing Bobby Green go down in training, Siyar Bahadurzada has also withdrawn from a rumble with Robbie Lawler for health-related reasons. While Schaub’s match-up with Mitrione was scrapped completely, Green and Bahadurzada have both been replaced by Tim Means and Bobby Voelker respectively.

UFC officials have confirmed the changes. Bahadurzada himself was a fill-in, taking Tarec Saffiedine‘s spot under similar circumstances.

Voelker lost a decision to Patrick Cote in his UFC debut after picking up three straight wins in Strikeforce. He holds an overall record of 24-9 and should be down to slug it out with the heavy-handed Lawler based on having fifteen TKOs to his credit.

Means, who faces Danny Castillo on the preliminary portion of the July 27 card, is 18-4-1 including thirteen submissions. The 29-year old saw a nine-fight winning streak snapped in April when he fell on the scorecards to Jorge Masvidal at UFC on FOX 7.

    Im really excited to see what Robbie Lawler can do in his new weight class. I’m fairly confident in saying he’s not champion material, but he will sure put on some good fights at WW. the UFC should throw him a bigger bone considering his first fight was against a top 10 guy in Koscheck. (top 10 at the time?)
