Following the cancellation of his planned fight this Saturday vs. Lyoto Machida, it is being reported that Dan Henderson will now face Hector Lombard at UFC 199.
The bout was first reported by Sherdog.
Set for June 4 from The Forum in Los Angeles, the event features Chris Weidman challenging for the middleweight title vs. Luke Rockhold.
Henderson (31-14) was all set to rematch Machida this weekend before “The Dragon” was removed after informing USADA officials that he took a banned substance. Machida, a former UFC light heavyweight champion won the rematch against the 45-year-old Henderson, who is just 2-6 over his last eight fights.
Lombard (34-5) is a former Bellator champion who will be returning to middleweight after a short stay at welterweight. He lost to Neil Magny in March.
