ufc 186

Chris Clements has agreed to step on as a replacement for Claudio Silva, taking on Nordine Taleb this April at UFC 186.

Set for April 25 from Montreal and the Bell Centre, the flyweight title will be on the line, as an injury knocked T.J. Dillashaw out of action.

Clements (12-5) first debuted with the UFC in 2012 and has gone 2-1 with a no-contest since. He finished Vik Grujic in his most recent bout.

Taleb (10-2) has been on multiple seasons of The Ultimate Fighter and is coming off a victory over Li Jingliang.
