UFC officials have tabbed Nicholas Musoke to replace Magnus Cedenblad and face Alessio Sakara in a few weeks at UFC Fight Night 30.
Set for October 26 from Manchester, the card features Lyoto Machida vs. Mark Munoz in the middleweight debut for Machida, a former UFC light heavyweight champion.
Musoke (10-2) will be making his UFC debut and carries a five-fight win streak with him. He is a training partner of Alexander Gustafsson’s in Stockholm, Sweden, and has finished eight of 10 opponents.
Sakara (15-10) is in need of a victory, having lost to the likes of Chris Weidman and Brian Stann recently. He is 6-7 with the UFC overall.
