Troy Worthen replaces Stephen Loman, faces John Lineker at ONE on TNT Part III
Stephen Loman is off the ONE on TNT Part III card. The Filipino bantamweight has tested positive for Covid-19 and Troy Worthen will now be facing John Lineker instead.
Worthen (7-1) has originally been booked to face Shuya Kamikubo on the card, which is being broadcast in the US on April 21st. Instead he finds himself matched with UFC veteran Lineker (33-9).
It is a blow for Loman who had been set to make his ONE Championship debut. Teammate Lito Adiwang was also forced to withdraw after a positive Covid-19 test while Eduard Folayang’s participation in the series is also in doubt.
It remains to be seen whether a replacement opponent can be found to face Kamikubo.
