Jason High Fighting Erick Silva at UFC On FUEL 10

UFC welterweight Jason High took to Twitter to announce an opponent change for his UFC On FUEL 10: Nogueira Vs Werdum II bout. High was set to fight Ildemar Alcantara, but when John Hathaway was injured, he was tapped to fight on the main card against Erick Silva. This will be High’s second fight in the UFC, as he fought once in 2010 but he lost to Charlie Brenneman and was released after just one fight.

UFC on Fuel TV 10 will act as the ‘Finale’ card for TUF Brasil 2, and will feature a heavyweight fight between Antônio Rodrigo Nogueira and Fabricio Werdum and the finals to determine who will be awarded the UFC contract. UFC on FUEL TV 10 takes place June 8 at Ginasio Paulo Sarasate in Fortaleza, Ceara, Brazil.

High Tweeted:
