A pair of updates have been made to future UFC cards, as Alex White replaces Jim Alers and meets Lucas Martins at UFC Fight Night 45.

Also, the UFC Fight night 49 card has received a new contest, as Aaron Phillips faces Matt Hobar.

White (10-0) is coming off a knockout win in his Octagon debut, finishing Estevan Payan in April. His management team made the fight announcement, which has yet to be confirmed by the UFC.

Martins (14-1) scored a win over Junior Hernandez most recently via first round technical submission.

Phillips (8-1) saw his eight-fight win streak snapped by Sam Sicilia in May, while Hobar (8-2) was defeated by Pedro Munhoz in the same month.

UFC Fight Night 45 features a main event between lightweights Donald Cerrone and Jim Miller on July 16 from the Revel Casino, while UFC Fight Night 49 boasts Benson Henderson and Rafael dos Anjos – two more 155-pound fighters – for August 23 and the BOK Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
