T.J. Laramie out of May 1 UFC bout against Damon Jackson

Damon Jackson needs a new opponent.

On Wednesday, Jackson’s scheduled featherweight opponent T.J. Laramie announced that he has been forced to withdraw from their May 1 UFC Fight Night encounter. The 23-year-old Canadian did not go into detail as to why he is out of the fight, writing, “I’ll be back as soon as I’m healthy” on Instagram.

This was to be Laramie’s second UFC appearance after a disappointing debut against Darrick Minner in September. Laramie, a top prospect out of Ontario, Canada, was forced to tap to a guillotine choke just 52 seconds into round one.
