Magny (21-7 MMA, 14-6 UFC) has withdrawn from the matchup with Luque (15-6-1 MMA, 8-2 UFC) due to undisclosed reasons, MMA Junkie confirmed with a UFC official.
Even though the event in on Saturday, the organization is looking for a replacement opponent to fill in and fight Luque on the card.
UFC on ESPN+ 10 took place at Blue Cross Arena in Rochester, N.Y. The entire card streamed on ESPN+.
Luque is on a four-fight winning streak, most recently defeating Bryan Barberena by third-round TKO in February at UFC on ESPN 1. That fight is sure to hold up as a “Fight of the Year” candidate. Luque has won eight of his past nine fights overall, with each of those victories being a finish.
Magny, meanwhile, is coming off a fourth-round knockout loss to Santiago Ponzinibbio last November in the UFC Fight Night 140 main event, which snapped a two-fight winning streak.
With Magny’s withdrawal, the UFC on ESPN+ 10 lineup now includes:
