For unknown reasons Justin McCully has been forced to withdraw from his scheduled fight against Christian Wellisch next weekend at UFC 76 in Anaheim. Filling in will be 6-1 mixed martial artist Scott Junk according to the Honolulu Star-Bulletin.
The fight will be Junk’s UFC debut.
Junk lost his MMA debut to Ricco Rodriguez at Rumble on the Rock 7 but has bounced back to win 6 consecutive fights. He fought early in his career for Rumble on the Rock before moving on to fight in both Icon and Extreme Wars. Most recently he has competed in Maximum Fighting Championships events in Canada. In his last fight Junk defeated Jimmy Ambriz via TKO due to corner stoppage at the end of round 1.
