A change has been made to the upcoming UFC on Versus 5 fight card. Charles Oliveira has replaced Paul Taylor and will face Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone in Milwaukee.

Sources close to the match-up confirmed the bout to MMAWeekly.com on Wednesday.

Oliveira steps in just two weeks after his fight with Nik Lentz in Pittsburgh at UFC on Versus 4...

What's with all these false match-ups lately?

EDIT: Oh, and I think Cerrone will beat him pretty easily.

Wait, what was the original fight

Hard fight to pick for me. Charles goes from one potential tough match up to another tough one.

My first thought is Charles UD b/c of his speed.

Have Taylor step in for Oliveira and fight Lauzon.

Man, this could really easily be FOTN. Miller-Bendo and Lylte-Hardy have the potential as well.

This is an incredibly interesting fight. Oliveira's striking looked really good against Lentz, and we all know about his BJJ.

Cerrone is a pretty good kickboxer though, and he has a pretty good ground game himself. What a war this should be!

This is such a solid free card. All the way through it's solid. Can't wait for this.

Damn! wanted to see Lauzon v Oliveira but the Cerrone fight also is awesome. I think Cerrone beats Oliveira at his own game and submits him.

Way too tough to call this one I love Cerrone but Oliveira is a beast and I think he just underestimated Jim Miller ground game....I think he stays mobile he wins a very close decision...I mean very close...There will be lots of arguing who won..

Oliviera made a mistake against Miller who is probably the strongest guy in the division and among the best overall, Cerrone is a great fighter but Oliviera should be ready for him. I would love to see the winner fight Pettis.
