Newcomer Taylor Lapilus steps in to fight Dennis Siver at UFC Fight Night 53
Taylor Lapilus (8-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC) is a late addition to next month’s UFC Fight Night 53 event and will fight featherweight Dennis Siver (21-9 MMA, 10-6 UFC) on two weeks’ notice.
MMAjunkie first reported this past week that Siver’s original opponent, Robert Whiteford (11-2 MMA, 1-1 UFC), had been forced on the card. UFC.com recently reported Lapilus as his replacement.
UFC Fight Night 53 takes place Oct. 4 at Ericsson Globe in Stockholm. The entire event streams on UFC Fight Pass.
