After reports of Gesias Cavalcante (18-7-1) being injured and forced to withdraw from his WSOF 8 title fight against Justin Gathje (10-0), a new opponent has been tapped.
That new opponent is reported to be fellow undefeated fighter in Lewis Gonzalez (9-0).
SciFighting spoke to a representative from the World Series of Fighting earlier today after the news was reported by MMAJunkie:
“That’s what I heard,” the rep said when asked if Gonzalez had indeed been selected to replace Cavalcante.
The source was not able to confirm if the bout agreement had been signed but all signs seem to point to this new matchup.
World Series of Fighting 8 takes place on Jan. 18th at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida. The co-main event is a bout between Anthony Johnson and Mike Kyle.
