Six-fight UFC veteran Reza Madadi will replace Mairbek Taisumov and fight Joaquim Silva at UFC Fight Night 109.
Madadi (14-5) takes the fight on short notice, as the card goes down next Sunday from Stockholm, Sweden. In the main event, Alexander Gustafsson battles Glover Teixeira.
The Iranian-born Madadi, who now lives and trains in Stockholm, is coming off a decision loss to Joseph Duffy earlier this year. He spent over two years on the sidelines with legal troubles.
Silva (9-0) has scored wins in both of his previous Octagon fights.
The bout is scheduled to be part of the FOX Sports 1 prelims.
