Well, the search for Justin Gaethje’s new UFC Lincoln opponent didn’t last long.
Late Wednesday night it was reported that Al Iaquinta had pulled out of his upcoming main event bout with the former WSOF champion, Gaethje that was set to take place on August 25th.
The reason for why Iaquinta pulled out remains unknown but now we have the answer to who his replacement is.
After the quick rumblings of possibly Kevin Lee or David Teymur filling in, the UFC has now confirmed ESPN‘s initial report that James Vick is replacing the Serra-Longo product, Iaquinta.
That punching bag Gaethje don't want these problems!!

How do you see this one going now?
You think Justin will get back on track? Or is this Vick's chance to finally get a win over a big opponent?
