The injury bug has struck UFC Fight Night 28. Marcelo Guimaraes was set to face Keith Wisniewski but an elbow injury has halted his training and forced him off the card. According to multiple reports, promotional newcomer Ivan “Batman” Jorge will step in to take his place. The lightweight comes over from Jungle Fight where he was the champion and is riding a 6 fight win streak.
MMAfighting reported the change. UFC Fight Night 28: Teixeira Vs. Bader takes place September 4 at Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, Brazil. In the main event, light heavyweights Glover Teixeira and Ryan Bader will square off in a number one contender bout. In the co-main event Yushin Okami will take on Ronaldo Jacare to see who moves up the middleweight ladder.
