Sultan Aliev out of UFC 202 due to injury, opponent Hyun Gyu Lim reportedly to welcome newcomer Mike Perry


There’s been a late injury change to UFC 202 later this month, as Sultan Aliev has been forced to pull out of a fight with Hyun Gyu Lim.

According to reporter Ariel Helwani, Aliev is being replaced by undefeated newcomer Mike Perry on the card.

The 24-year-old Perry makes a short notice debut with six wins, each of them by (T)KO. Lim is returning to action for the first time since May of 2015. He was knocked out by Neil Magny in his most recent fight, but he holds three stoppage wins in his previous four UFC appearances.

UFC 202 hits Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena on August 20, headlined by the welterweight rematch between Featherweight Champ Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz.
