    Razak Al-Hussan expected to replace Thomasz Drwal at UFC 87

    Undefeated Midwest prospect Razak Al-Hussan (5-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) is expected to replace Thomasz Drwal (14-2 MMA, 0-1 UFC) in a UFC 87 bout with IFL veteran Andre Gusmao (5-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC).

    Sources close to Al-Hussan tell MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that the UFC newcomer accepted the fight with Gusmao this week.

    The reason for Drwal's likely absence from the Aug. 9 bout wasn't immediately known.

    UFC 87 takes place Aug. 9 at the Target Center in Minneapolis and airs live on pay per view.

    Drwal, a native of Poland who debuted with the UFC (and suffered a loss to Thiago Silva) in September, was also forced out of a February fight with David Heath because of a knee injury. However, it's not known if that injury is related to his likely withdraw from UFC 87.

    Al-Hussan, meanwhile, debuted professionally in February 2007 and has posted four stoppage victories (three via submission and one via TKO) in his five pro fights. The Des Moines-based fighter most recently scored a first-round submission victory over Josh Karney at a May 10 World Cage Fighting event.

    Gusmao, one of many recent UFC signees from the struggling IFL organization, had also been scheduled to meet Heath at UFC 81. However, the tentatively scheduled bout was scratched when it was learned the jiu-jitsu expert was still under contract to the IFL.

    Like Al-Hussan, he'll make his UFC debut at UFC 87.
    Gusmao was one of the best from the IFL, and i fully expect him to beat this new guy.
