Li Jingliang will no longer be facing Jonathan Meunier at UFC Fight Night 111 next Saturday (June 17). Meunier, it was reported today, has suffered an injury and will now be replaced by UFC newcomer Frank Camacho, who has jumped at the late-notice opportunity to face Jingliang in Singapore.
Camacho, 20-4, is a 28-year-old from Guam, raised in Saipain. He appeared in The Ultimate Fighter 16, only to lose in an elimination round, and has won five of his last six fights, all five of them coming via stoppage. A dangerous knockout artist, who turned pro at the tender age of sixteen, Camacho has secured eighteen stoppages in his twenty career wins, including fifteen knockouts.
Jingliang, meanwhile, is 8-1 in his MMA career and currently riding his first UFC win streak. Knockouts of Bobby Nash and Anton Zafir snapped the win one-lose one pattern that threatened to blight ‘The Leech’s early UFC career and now he can look forward to putting on a show for the Singapore fans with a great deal of momentum behind him.
