Brazilian grappling ace Raphael Assuncao (18-4 MMA, 2-1 UFC) has replaced an injured Bryan Caraway (17-5 MMA, 2-0 UFC) and now faces Mike Easton (13-1 MMA, 3-0 UFC) at UFC on FOX 5.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) learned of the change from sources close to the fighters.

UFC on FOX 5 takes place Dec. 8 at KeyArena in Seattle. The Assuncao-Easton bantamweight fight is expected be part of the Facebook-streamed preliminary card following additional preliminary bouts on Facebook and prior to the night's main card on FOX.

Easton now prepares for his third different opponent as Caraway was also an injury replacement after he stepped in for T.J. Dillashaw.

Holy, third times the charm? At least they have a replacement and a solid prospect at that. Going to be interesting to see how their styles match up.

Thought Easton was gonna roll against Caraway. This should be a step up in competition, and tougher fight for Mike.

Tough call for me, Easton is a beaston but Assuncao looked fantastic in his last fight. He impressed me so I'll end up picking him because I lke him, then be wrong.
