UFC Adelaide: Injury forces Luke Jumeau off card

New Zealand’s Luke Jumeau (13-4 MMA, 2-1 UFC) return to the cage will have to wait a bit longer with an injury forcing the 30-year-old off next month’s UFC Fight Night: Tuivasa vs Dos Santos card in Adelaide.

It’s been a tough year for Jumeau who has been recovering from a hand injury suffered in his last outing – a decision win over Daichi Abe back in February.

Jumeau was originally scheduled to face American Geoff Neal (10-2 MMA, 2-0 UFC).

Neal has had a new opponent confirmed and will instead face Belal Muhammad at UFC Fight Night 143 in January.
