Renan Barao will be fighting for a title, but Ivan Menjivar isn't missing out on a big fight.

UFC officials today announced that with Barao now fighting Urijah Faber at July's UFC 148 event, the Brazilian's original opponent, Ivan Menjivar, will now fight Mike Easton.

Good fight. I doubt Menjivar lets Easton take it slow and steady has he tends to do sometimes. Could be fireworks early.

Easton is a very formidable opponent and I agree - it's a good replacement.

Nice, not a bad replacement at all. I wonder if Easton is ready for this though. I guess we will see.

With this fight, whoever wins the interim title might face another opponent before Cruz is back.

We could see Faber/Barao winner maybe face winner of this Easton/Ivan.

Or Mayday.

Cruz is thinking he'll be back early, but I say no.

First thing I thought when I saw the headline. prozacnation (#PZNbitches) always seems to have the logistics of all UFC events worked out before Joe Silva thinks about match making.

Easton got alot of hype behind him right now for some reason, still a great match up though.

Hype is deserved in my opinion. Great fighter only knock is I think sometimes he fights down to the competition.
