It’s being reported from multiple sources that Shane Young has agreed to step in to take on Alex Volkanovski on short notice in a catch weight bout at 150lbs.
Volkanovski was originally set to take on Humberto Bandeney at featherweight until Bandeney withdrew just a few days ago. UFC has been searching for a replacement so Volkanovski could remain on the card.
Shane “Sugar” Young will be stepping in on seven days’ notice to make his UFC debut. Young, who fights out of City Kickboxing in Auckland is 11-3 in his professional career and is the former XFC featherweight champion.
More details to come later.
