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. Link
