Day withdraws from UFC 88
The bout was to be part of the preliminary fight card for UFC 88, headlined by a fight between former UFC light heavyweight champion
After managing a three-fight winning streak to start his UFC career, Lambert was possibly fighting for his place in the Octagon having lost three of his last four bouts for the promotion. Competing entirely at 205 pounds in the UFC, he was planning to make his promotional debut at 185 pounds at UFC 88.
No replacement has yet been named, but it is believed that the UFC is working to find an opponent for Lambert in the 185-pound division to keep the bout intact at the Atlanta event.
