A broken hand has forced lightweight Rafaello Oliveira to withdraw from UFC on FOX 5, but he's been replaced.

Stepping in for the Brazilian is Marcus LeVesseur (22-6 MMA, 1-1 UFC), who is set to meet "The Ultimate Fighter 15" winner Michael Chiesa (8-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC), sources close to the event told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com).

The new matchup serves on the FUEL TV-televised prelims of the event, which takes place Dec. 8 at KeyArena in Seattle. Main-card fights air on FOX.

MMAjunkie.com passed along news of Oliveira's injury earlier today, though his replacement wasn't known at the time.

Earlier this month, LeVesseur won a hard-fought split decision over Carlo Prater at UFC on FX 5, which put him back on the right track after his octagon debut at UFC on FUEL TV 3 ended in a first-round submission loss to Cody McKenzie. Boasting an amateur wrestling record of 155-0, LeVesseur notably outpointed current Bellator welterweight champ Ben Askren on the mats at Augsburg College.

I'm glad that Chiesa was able to get a replacement.
And this is a very winnable fight for Chiesa. Despite having an unorthodox standup he finds ways to win.

I think Chiesa gets the fight to the ground and pulls off the submission.
War Chiesa

Not sure who I'll end up picking but I'm glad they found a quick replacement for him.
