George Tokkos to Replace Antonio Trocoli Against Oumar Sy at UFC Fight Night 241

UFC
May 16, 2024
A matchup of light heavyweight debutants has been rearranged with less than a week to go before UFC Fight Night 241.

Undefeated French standout Oumar Sy (9-0) was scheduled to meet Brazil’s Antonio Trocoli (12-3) at the UFC Apex on Saturday. However, Trocoli has now withdrawn due to undisclosed reasons and will now be replaced by another promotional debutant in George Tokkos (10-3). The change was first reported by Al Zullino on X (Formerly known as Twitter). The promotion has since confirmed the new bout.

Trocoli first earned a Ultimate Fighting Championship contract with a Dana White’s Contender Serieswin in 2019 but was released after failing a drug test. He was then scheduled to debut against Ovince St. Preux in 2022 but withdrew from the bout.

Sy is currently undefeated in nine pro outings, which includes seven finishes. The 28-year-old signed with the promotion in October 2023 on the back of consecutive Round 1 stoppage wins.

Meanwhile, Tokkos had a brief 0-2 stint in Bellator MMA but has since gone 6-1. While “Tuco” suffered a brutal technical knockout loss against Mingyang Zhang at Road to UFC in 2022, he bounced back with three consecutive victories to earn a UFC contract.
