Almost as quickly as it was announced that Brazilian phenom Erick Silva was without an opponent for UFC Rio: Aldo vs. Mendes, another fighter has already stepped up to fill the void.

Silva was originally slated to face stand-up specialist Siyar Bahadurzada, but an injury knocked the Afghan out of the fight. Taking his place is Brazilian born Texas transplant Carlo Prater.

Some injuries and whatever hitting this card.

I haven't seen Prater since his WEC stint.

I can't believe Siyar is out. So disappointed in that. He was the part of the card I was most looking forward to. Decent replacement though.

Agreed. He was the highlight for me.

Glad to see success in 2nd tier shows doesn't go unnoticed!
Prater has been ona hot streak lately.
Will he beat Erick Silva?.... No.

Siyar vs Silva was going to be ridiculous. Silva v Prater will be a showcase.
