A change has been made to the August UFC 163: Aldo vs. Korean Zombie card, as Phil Harris has suffered an injury.
Harris was set to meet John Lineker, but that spot will now go to newcomer Jose Maria Tome. The card takes place August 3 from the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Tome (33-3) is unbeaten since 2008, winning 15 fights with one no-contest. He owns 15 knockout and 13 submission victories to his credit.
