UFC newcomer Francimar Barosso has stepped up on short notice to fight Ednaldo Oliveira at UFC 163 in Brazil. Barosso is a solid prospect sporting a 15-3 record and were it not for a loss to Baga Agaev in 2011 he would be undefeated since 2008.

Tatame had the news, after Robert Drysdale was forced out of his UFC debut with a reported staph infection. It should make for an interesting fight as both Edinaldo and Bodao like to strike, but possess entirely different ranges for doing so. At 6'7" Edinaldo is not only the tallest light heavyweight in the UFC, but one of the tallest fighters in the promotion at all. He's not a technical wizard standing, but his lanky frame allows him to generate a decent amount of power on the end of his strikes.

At least there's still a fight. So many unknown guys in Brazil events that step up on late notice, I think all the brazil cards this year have more than one of these guys.

Kid seems legit too, so I am not too disappointed...I just hope this isn't some crazy shit, like Randleman's case back in the day.
