UFC 149: Have No Fear, Brian Ebersole Is Here

Brian Ebersole has agreed to take a fight on short notice, stepping in for Claude Patrick to face James Head at UFC 149 on July 21.

Ebersole-Head will take place from Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The main event for the evening features Urijah Faber and Renan Barao for the interim UFC bantamweight title.

UFC 149 has been hit hard by injuries, as such notables as UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo, former interim UFC heavyweight champion Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira and ex-UFC light heavyweight champ Mauricio “Shogun” Rua have been removed in the past weeks.

Ebersole (50-14) has won his last 11 fights, including his first four inside the Octagon. He toppled T.J. Waldburger just a few weeks ago and is hoping to land a spot on The Ultimate Fighter: The Smashes as the Team Australia coach.

Head (8-2) has went 1-1 in his UFC career, defeating Papy Abedi recently via submission.
