    Default Ivan Jorge replaces Marcelo Guimaraes at UFC Fight Night 28

    Next month's UFC Fight Night 28 event in Brazil has a late change.

    Marcelo Guimaraes suffered an elbow injury and has been forced out of a welterweight bout with Keith Wisniewski (28-14-1 MMA, 0-3 UFC), and promotional newcomer and Jungle Fight lightweight champion Ivan Jorge (24-3 MMA, 0-0 UFC) will move up a weight class and serve as a replacement, according to Globo's SporTV.

    UFC Fight Night 28 takes place Sept. 4 at Mineirinho Arena in Belo Horizonte. The six-fight main card airs on FOX Sports 1 following prelims on Facebook.

    Jorge vs. Wisniewski is slated for the prelim stream.

    Jorge aka Batman has had a really good run lately for the Jungle Fight promotion in Brazil. He'll be giving up some size by fighting at WW, since he's a natural 155er and could possibly even get down to 145 but I'm not sure how high he cuts down from, but he should have an relatively easy night against a journeyman like Wisniewski.
