UFC On FX 8 Change: Nik Lentz In To Face Hacran Dias

A meeting between scheduled Chad Mendes opponents will not happen after all, as Manny Gamburyan has been forced out of a fight with Hacran Dias. Nik Lentz will now meet Dias at UFC on FX: Belfort vs. Rockhold.

The card takes place May 18 from the Arena Jaragua in Jaragua do Sul, Brazil.

Lentz (23-5-2) improved to 7-2-1 inside the Octagon when he bested Diego Nunes earlier this year. He has won both his matches since moving to featherweight.

Dias (21-1-1) is 1-0 with the UFC. He was set to meet Mendes last year before suffering an injury.
