Almost as soon as it was revealed “Razor” Rob McCullough’s fight with Marcus Hicks has been scratched from WEC 38 on Jan. 25 in San Diego, Calif.
McCullough’s manager, Ken Pavia of MMA Agents, informed MMAWeekly.com of the change. Citing a grueling 16-week camp the former lightweight champion went through in preparation for his last fight with Donald Cerrone at WEC 36, Pavia said McCullough would not be ready to face Hicks.
In a fight widely considered to be a fight of the year candidate (for those who saw it), McCullough came up short in his three-round war with Cerrone, who will next face lightweight champion Jamie Varner on the Jan. 25 card.
Pavia said McCullough would likely return in the WEC’s next show, scheduled for sometime in March.
