LaFlare Out, Cummings in vs. Nelson

An injury has forced UFC welterweight prospect Ryan LaFlare out of his July 19 UFC Fight Night bout against Gunnar Nelson. Stepping up to replace the New Yorker at the O2 in Dublin is surging former TUF 17 competitor Zak Cummings.

Cummings is currently on a four-fight winning streak with Octagon victories over Benny Alloway and Yan Cabral. Originally scheduled to face Kenny Robertson on July 16th's UFC Fight Night event in Atlantic City, the Missouri product will now step into the Octagon three days later, with Robertson to soon get a new opponent.
