ufc fight night 48

An injury to Sheldon Westcott has forced a change to a planned prelim fight at UFC Fight Night 48 this Saturday from China.

Shinsho Anzai will make his Octagon debut against Alberto Mina at the card, which airs entirely on UFC Fight Pass. The main event boasts Michael Bisping against Cung Le.

Anzai (8-1) carries a six-fight win streak into his debut with the UFC, including a June win via first round TKO. Of his eight career victories, six have been finishes.

Mina (10-0) will also be making his debut with the promotion after having his scheduled debut scrapped following a failed weigh-in. He came in eight pounds over for a March fight with Zak Cummings, who declined competing due to the weight difference.

Below is the current lineup:

Middleweight: Michael Bisping vs. Cung Le

Welterweight: Tyron Woodley vs. Dong Hyun Kim
