UFN 34 Update: Dias Out, Replacement Sought

Tatsuya Kawajiri

The UFC Fight Night 34 lineup has taken another hit as co-main event fighter Hacran Dias has been struck from his co-main event fight with Tatsuya Kawajiri due to injury. The UFC has yet to confirm the injury first reported by MMAJunkie earlier today.

Injuries to Dias, and his opponents, have hindered the Brazilian’s progress since joining the UFC in 2012. Dias was last in action at UFC on FX 8, losing a back-and-forth battle to Nik Lentz in Brazil. The loss snapped a nine-fight win streak for the Brazilian fighter.

The UFC’s first ever trip to the city state of Singapore will take place at the Marina Bay Sands¬†for January 4, 2014. The UFC Fight Night 34 fight card will be headlined by a welterweight pairing between Hyun Gyu Lim and former Strikeforce champion Tarec Saffiedine. Official broadcast plans have yet to be announced, though the card will likely air live via FOX Sports 1 or FOX Sports 2.

  • Tarec Saffiedine vs. Hyun Gyu Lim
  • Tatsuya Kawajiri vs. TBA
