Bisping withdraws, Lombard in as UFC 149 replacement against Boetsch
The bout will likely be apart of the main card, which is set for July 21 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
Lombard, who signed with the UFC in April, just finished a lengthy stint in Bellator where he held the middleweight title. He is currently on a 20-fight winning streak and dives head first into the middleweight division as a contender.
In the opposite corner come July, Boetsch will look to build off an impressive comeback win against Yushin Okami at UFC 144. He was well behind on the judges scorecard after the first two frames, but earned an improbable technical knockout to continue his push up the 185 lb. ladder.
