Bosse had agreed to replace Jackson and face Fabio Maldonado at the April 25 event when it appeared as though “Rampage” would not make the date. Instead, the 33-year-old Canadian will make his Octagon debut at "The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 4" finale against Thiago Santos on June 27.

Diego Sanchez plans featherweight move, eyes Guida, Lamas, McGregor and UFC history
With a broken collarbone mended, Diego Sanchez (25-7 MMA, 14-7 UFC) is itching to return to the cage, and if things go according to plan, he’ll be doing it in the featherweight division. “I’m going down to 145,” Sanchez said on the latest edition of “The MMA Road Show” with John Morgan. “I think there’s some great fights down there at 145. Even right away, I’m going to be a force in the divison – right away. And I know all the 145-pounders are, ‘Oh, that’s if you make weight. If Diego can make weight.’ That’s what they’re going to be saying. But, you know what? I’m going to do it. I’m going to make weight, and I’m going down to this division.”
