An injury to Magnus Cedenblad has opened the door for Nicholas Musoke to debut in the UFC.
Musoke will face Alessio Sakara at UFC Fight Night 30 later this month from Manchester, England. The bout is set for the prelim on a night when Lyoto Machida makes his middleweight debut vs. Mark Munoz.
A training partner of Alexander Gustafsson, Musoke (10-2) has won five in a row. Eight of his 10 career victories have been stoppage wins.
Sakara (15-10) has been sidelined since late in 2012 with kidney issues. He is 6-7 within the Octagon.
