Changes Made To UFC 149 Fight Card Lineup

Siyar Bahadurzada has a replacement opponent for July, as Chris Clements will step in to face him at UFC 149.

The event, which features a main event between UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo and Erik Koch, takes place July 21 from Calgary, Ontario, Canada.

Clements will replace Thiago Alves, who was injured and forced off the card last week. On the same day, Thiago Silva was removed from a bout with Mauricio “Shogun” Rua, with no word yet on a replacement for Silva.

Also, DREAM 135-pound champion Bibiano Fernandes has signed with the UFC to face Roland Delorme on the card.

The UFC confirmed both new fights on Monday.
