A knee injury has forced "The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil" cast member Thiago Perpetuo (9-1-1 MMA, 1-0 UFC) out of a planned UFC on FX 7 matchup with Michael Kuiper (12-1 MMA, 1-1 UFC).

In his place steps Caio Magalhaes (5-1 MMA, 0-1 UFC), who now meets Kuiper in a middleweight matchup.

UFC officials today announced the change for the event, which takes place Jan. 19 at Ginasio Estadual Geraldo Jose de Almeida, also known as Ginasio do Ibirapuera, in Sao Paulo.

The evening's main card airs on FX, but Kuiper vs. Magalhaes is expected to take place on the evening's preliminary card.

I was not that impressed with Caio in his UFC debut he seem to gas out a bit. If the same thing happens to him in this fight I look for Kuiper to score a KO/TKO late in the fight.
