According to an initial
report by MMA journalist Igor Lazorin, Tukhugov was forced to
pull out of the fight due to injury.
MMAFighting.com has since confirmed that Ramos will not remain
on the card after the promotion was unable to find a replacement
opponent for him.
UFC Fight Night 187 takes place on Saturday at the UFC Apex in Las
Vegas and is headlined by a welterweight tilt between Leon
Edwards and Belal
Muhammad. The card will stream in its entirety on ESPN+.
Tukhugov split a pair of bouts in 2020, defeating Kevin
Aguilar via first-round TKO at UFC Fight Night 168 before
dropping a split decision to Hakeem
Dawodu at UFC 253.
Ramos has been victorious in five of his seven Octagon appearances
but is coming off a first-round stoppage loss to Lerone
Murphy at UFC on ESPN 13 this past July.
