'Kid' Yamamoto out, Wilson Reis meets Ivan Menjivar at UFC 165 in Toronto
It didn't take long for Wilson Reis to book his next fight after being scrapped from Wednesday's card in Brazil.
With Norifumi Yamamoto (18-6 MMA, 0-3 UFC) out, Reis (16-4 MMA, 0-0 UFC) will step in later this month to meet Ivan Menjivar (25-10 MMA, 4-3 UFC) in a bantamweight bout at UFC 165. UFC officials announced the change on Tuesday afternoon.
UFC 165 takes place Sept. 21 at Air Canada Centre in Toronto. The main card airs on pay-per-view and features a light heavyweight title fight between champion Jon Jones and top contender Alexander Gustafsson. In the co-main event, interim bantamweight champion Renan Barao defends against Eddie Wineland. Prelims for the show air on FOX Sports 1 and Facebook.
