Jumeau forced out

Nelson Mail - - Sport -

Luke Jumeau has al­ready set his sights on a re­turn to the oc­tagon in Fe­bru­ary af­ter he was forced to with­draw from a bout next month in Aus­tralia af­ter suf­fer­ing a foot in­jury in train­ing. The Kiwi wel­ter­weight was due to end a 10-month lay­off against Amer­i­can Ge­off Neal at UFC Fight Night in Ade­laide on De­cem­ber 2. He is ex­pected to be side­lined for the next six weeks. But with the UFC head­ing back to Aus­tralia in three months’ time for mid­dleweight cham­pion Robert Whit­taker’s ti­tle de­fence against Kelvin Gastelum, Jumeau has a re­turn date to aim for.
