Lenny Wheeler injured, Sabah Fadai faces Marcus Brimage for Z Promotions Featherweight Belt in Calgary on Jan 23



An injury has forced Lenny Wheeler out of his January 23 title fight with Sabah Fadai. Former UFC Marcus Brimage has stepped up to the plate to fight Fadai, and compete for the Z Promotions featherweight championship title which takes place on January 23 in Calgary, Alberta.

The title bout will take place on the evening’s main card.

Brimage (7-5) will step inside the cage for the first time since being released from the UFC. “The Bama Beast” went 3-1 before his stint on The Ultimate Fighter and went 4-4 under the UFC banner. Most recently Brimage is coming off a loss to Jimmy Rivera at UFC Fight Night 72 in July 2015.

Fadai (11-4, 1NC) last fought in May at Unified MMA 23, where he earned that organizations 145-pound gold by beating Parwez Ghulam by second round TKO. “The Persian Warrior” is on a three-fight winning streak, but has only been able to fight three times in the last two years.
