Ricardo Lamas Injured; Poirier Awaits Third Opponent For UFC 143

Dustin Poirier once again needs an opponent for UFC 143. Ricardo Lamas is the latest victim to fall to injury and has been pulled from his fight in February against Poirier.

UFC officials announced the injury news on Thursday.

Lamas was stepping into the bout on short notice to replace fellow featherweight contender Erik Koch, who himself was forced off the card with injury.

There was no word on the nature of the injury that Lamas suffered or how long he’ll be sidelined.

Now, Dustin Poirier will wait for UFC matchmaker Sean Shelby to work his magic again and find his potential third opponent in the last few weeks as he prepares for UFC 143.

MMAWeekly.com will have more information on who Poirier will face when it becomes available.
