Jorge Masvidal Steps In To Fight Michael Chiesa At UFC On FOX 8

Jorge Masvidal will replace Reza Madadi and face Michael Chiesa in July at UFC on FOX: Johnson vs. Moraga. UFC Tonight confirmed the change in opponents for Chiesa.

The card takes place July 27 from the KeyArena in Seattle. The bout will be part of the FX prelims.

Masvidal (24-7) has won two straight since falling to Gilbert Melendez in a bout for the Strikeforce lightweight championship.

Chiesa (9-0) is a former winner of The Ultimate Fighter and riding a five-fight submission streak. He finished Anton Kuivanen earlier this year.
