September’s UFC return to Brazil has received a change, as Ivan Jorge will make his Octagon debut against Keith Wisniewski.
Jorge (24-3) steps in to replace Marcelo Guimaraes, who suffered an elbow injury. Their bout will take place on the Facebook prelims for UFC Fight Night: Bader vs. Teixeira September 4 from Belo Horizonte, Brazil.
“Batman” has won six straight fights and is 10-1 in his last 11 overall. The 32-year-old won the Jungle Fight title earlier this year.
Wisniewski (28-14-1) is 0-3 in his UFC career, which has taken place over two stints.
Globo SporTV first reported the change.
