Visa issues force Rogers from TUF 22 Finale, Hall now faces Lobov tomorrow night

Artem Lobov

A visa issue forced Saul Rogers out of his spot on “The Ultimate Fighter” finale so now Artem Lobov will meet American competitor Ryan Hall in the finals on Friday night.

Following a first fight loss on the show, Lobov rebounded with an incredible run through the reality show with a first round knockout over Julian Erosa on Wednesday night’s episode.

Ryan Hall lost to Saul Rogers in a close, majority decision in the other semifinal matchup, but when the visa issue arose the UFC quickly made a call to the American to step in as a replacement. The UFC has not released any information regarding what the VISA issues are but Bleacher Reports Jeremy Botter suggested that it was something to do with hiding a criminal record on his visa form.

The other fights announced for “The Ultimate Fighter” finale include:

Abner Lloveras VS Chris Gruetzemacher
Marcin Wrzosek VS Julian Erosa
