Bo Nickal, one of the top up-and-coming stars in the UFC, is without an opponent for UFC 290 on Saturday after the withdrawal of Tresean Gore.

Gore announced Tuesday on Instagram that he was out of the fight because of a wrist injury, writing that he might need surgery on the scaphoid bone of his wrist.

The UFC is looking for a replacement in order to keep Nickal on the card.

Nickal (4-0) is undefeated and has finished every opponent in the first round. The Colorado native made his UFC debut in March at UFC 285, beating Jamie Pickett via first-round submission. Nickal, 27, is a three-time former NCAA Division I wrestling national champion out of Penn State.

Gore (4-2), a 29-year-old from South Carolina, is a veteran of The Ultimate Fighter’s 29th season in 2021.
