White will now face Martins...
According to Guardian Sports, the team's fighter Alex White is set to replace Jim Alers against Lucas Martins at UFC Fight Night 45. Martins' originally scheduled opponent Jim Alers was forced to withdraw from the fight.
Alex White is 10-0 and won his Octagon debut, knocking out Estevan Payan at UFC on Fox 11. Speaking on his fight with Martins, White stated, "He's got good stand-up and I've got to look out for submissions, but my coach (Joe Worden of Destruction MMA) keeps telling me to watch out for his stand-up. He's got a good chin and I want to test it."
UFC Fight Night 45 is set for July 16 in Atlantic City, New Jersey. You can check out Alers' tweet confirming his dropping out of the fight below.
I will no longer be fighting July 16th. I will be back in a flash stronger and faster than ever. Love you guys
