Veteran fighter Brian Ebersole has agreed to replace Claude Patrick and face James Head at UFC 149, UFC officials reported on Tuesday. The card takes place July 21 from Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
Ebersole (50-14) has won 11 consecutive fights, including a victory over T.J. Waldburger just two weeks ago. He has won all four of his Octagon appearances.
Head (8-2) dropped his debut for the UFC last year before rebounding to submit Papy Abedi.
UFC 149 will feature a bout for the interim UFC bantamweight title between Urijah Faber and Renan Barao. The card has undergone some massive re-construction due to injuries over the past few weeks.
