The UFC have found a replacement for the withdrawn Zubaira Tukhugov at UFC Moncton.

Earlier today, sources confirmed to TheMacLife.com that Artem Lobov will remain on the card, and will now meet Michael Johnson after Tukhugov was pulled from the card for his part in the post-UFC 229 brawl, where he leapt into the Octagon to attack Conor McGregor following last Saturday’s main event.

It marks Johnson’s return to action after his split decision win over Andre Fili in August, and Lobov’s first fight since a defeat to Fili last October.

Lobov had originally been scheduled to return in April, but was removed from the card after teammate McGregor crashed the UFC 223 media day in Brooklyn.
