A recently reported bantamweight bout targeted for the UFC's return to Brazil has had a change.

According to a report from Sportv.com, Johnny Eduardo (26-9 MMA, 1-1 UFC) is out of a planned fight against Yuri Alcantara (27-4 MMA, 2-1 UFC). In Eduardo's place steps George Roop (12-9-1 MMA, 2-5 UFC), who will return to 135 pounds after a stint at featherweight.

The fight will take place Jan. 19 at the currently unannounced UFC event in Brazil, which is likely to air on either FX or FUEL TV. A host city has yet to be determined.

McDojo got pretty sweet after the show.

He's 6 foot 1, so if he cuts to 5 foot 10 it shouldn't be an issue. Shane Carwin walks around at 7 feet tall but he cut to 6 feet pretty easily.

He looks like a toothpick when he does. This is Alcantara's fight all day long.
