UFC 303: Jamahal Hill Gets New Opponent on McGregor Card

Rountree Out, Ulberg Steps In

Jamahal Hill will now face a new adversary at UFC 303. Carlos Ulberg has been confirmed as the replacement for Khalil Rountree, who had to withdraw after testing positive in a doping test. Rountree claimed the substance entered his system accidentally through a supplement. The Combat Sports Anti-Doping (CSAD) investigation supported his claim, resulting in a reduced two-month suspension.

This news, initially reported by the New Zealand Herald and later confirmed by MMA Junkie, has yet to be officially announced by the UFC. Ulberg, who has a record of 7-1 in the UFC, including an impressive 12-second knockout of Alonzo Menifield, now has a golden opportunity to climb the ranks further? (Sherdog)?? (WhoIsFighting)?.
