Unbeaten Lindsey Debuts vs. Tuck in ABQ

New lightweight bout is added to June 7 card in Albuquerque...
Unbeaten in nine pro fights, Kansas lightweight Jake "The Librarian" Lindsey will make his UFC debut on June 7 in Albuquerque, as he replaces the injured Yosdenis Cedeno in a UFC Fight Night bout against Jon Tuck.

Lindsey, 27, has finished seven of his nine wins, with his last four victories coming by knockout. In Guam's Tuck, he'll be facing a competitor from season 15 of The Ultimate Fighter who is 1-1 in the Octagon, with a win over Tiequan Zhang and a loss to Norman Parke.

The 11-bout UFC Fight Night event is headlined by former UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson's bout with Rustam Khabilov, and Diego Sanchez' homecoming showdown with Ross Pearson.
