With Joe Ellenberger vs. Vagner Rocha, Saturday's UFC 172 lineup again finalized
After shuffling to the preliminary card, the 11-bout lineup is now official for Saturday’s UFC 172 pay-per-view event.
UFC 172 takes place at Maryland’s Baltimore Arena. The PPV main card follows prelims on FOX Sports 1 and UFC Fight Pass.
As MMAjunkie first reported over the weekend, lightweight Yancy Medeiros (9-1 MMA, 0-1 UFC) recently stepped in to fight Jim Miller (23-4 MMA, 12-3 UFC) on the main card. Medeiros initially was slated to fight newcomer Joe Ellenberger (14-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC), the twin brother of UFC welterweight contender Jake Ellenberger.
Filling in for Medeiros and now fighting Ellenberger is Vagner Rocha (11-3 MMA, 1-2 UFC), a Bellator and Strikeforce vet who went 1-2 in his first UFC stint back in 2012. However, since then, the Brazilian has posted a 4-0 record with three submission victories.
