UFC 165 Change: Wilson Reis Steps In To Face Ivan Menjivar

Wilson Reis will make his Octagon debut after all, as he has stepped in to face Ivan Menjivar in a few short weeks at UFC 165.

Reis takes the place of Kid Yamamoto, who was removed by UFC officials.

The bout is scheduled for part of the FOX Sports 1 prelims on September 21 from Toronto and the Air Canada Centre.

Reis (16-4) was signed to face Hugo Viana this month, but that bout was pulled. He is a former Bellator competitor.

Menjivar (25-10) has won four of his last six, but was submitted by Urijah Faber earlier this year.
