Assuncao-Sterling off UFC Albany Card

Following Aljamain Sterling’s withdrawal from the UFC Fight Night card in Albany due to injury, his opponent on Dec. 9, No. 3-ranked bantamweight contender Raphael Assuncao, has decided to wait and fight Sterling when he returns, thus removing both fighters from the event.

Fight Night Albany, which is headlined by the heavyweight battle between Derrick Lewis and Shamil Abdurakhimov, will air live on UFC FIGHT PASS.

Winner of seven of his last eight bouts, including victories over the likes of TJ Dillashaw, Johnny Eduardo and Bryan Caraway, Brazil’s Assuncao was looking to add to his list of notable wins by spoiling the homecoming of the No. 8-ranked Sterling, a rising star from Long Island who was also seeking a move into the 135-pound title race with a win next week.
