World Extreme Cagefighting announced on Wednesday that Eric Schambari would be unable to face off with Tim McKenzie due to injury and was pulled from the June 1 fight.
Taking Schambari’s place will be WEC newcomer Jeremy Lang, who comes into the fight with a perfect 12-0 record. He enters the bout having won a decision victory over Brian Monoghan at a recent Warrior Fight Promotions show.
McKenzie made his return to the promotion at WEC 33 after competing in Bodog Fight for the last couple of years, being stopped by Steve Cantwell in the first round by strikes. McKenzie now moves down to middleweight, where he hopes to find better results.
This fight will be on the undercard of WEC 34, which will be headlined by featherweight champion Urijah Faber defending his title against former UFC lightweight champion Jens Pulver.
