MMAWeekly has learned that Rani Yahya is set to replace Manny Tapia at WEC 30 against Chase Beebe for the WEC Bantamweight Championship. Beebe was originally scheduled to defend his WEC Bantamweight Championship for the first time against former King of the Cage Flyweight Champion Manny Tapia, but Tapia has been forced to pull out of the fight due to a knee injury. Yahya will now step in to replace Tapia as Beebe’s first challenger. Yahya was already rumored to be on the card to face Brian Bowles in his debut at bantamweight, as Yahya moves down from 145lbs to 135lbs. Edit: WEC's Website confirms it.
