After his fight was canceled this past weekend, Jalin Turner has agreed to step in on short notice at UFC on ESPN+ 35.
With Frank Camacho out due to a positive COVID-19 test, Brok Weaver now is targeted to face Turner at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas on Saturday. MMA Junkie confirmed the replacement fight is in the works after an initial report from BJ Penn.com.
Turner (9-5 MMA, 2-2 UFC) had his fight with Thiago Moises scrapped from the UFC on ESPN+ 34 card after Moises tested positive for COVID-19. Turner, who’s split his first four UFC appearances, will get the opportunity to compete just one week later when he takes on fellow Dana White’s Contender Series alum Weaver.
