The UFC’s first trip to Southeast Asia will feature a substitute headliner, as Hyun Gyu Lim is replacing an injured Jake Ellenberger.

Correct. Shouldn't be a problem with 5 weeks to go.

Good for him to take a fight against someone like Tarec but it may be too soon for him.

I think Luiz Dutra Jr that was on TUF Brazil 2 will be stepping in to face Kunimoto.

Sucks, maybe we can get Jake vs Lawler? And where the hell is Thiago Alves in all this?!

Alves has been sidelined with injuries and shit for while. He says he's returning in March, my guess is against Rory Mac.

As far as Lim/Saffiedine goes, it's definitely an interesting match up and should be exciting since both guys are great strikers but definitely have different styles of stiking. We'll see how Lim deals with a huge step up in competition. The only crappy thing now is that this card really lacks star power.
