With Alexander Gustafsson officially off UFC 227 due to injury, the UFC has added another fight to next week’s fight card in Los Angeles.
Thiago Santos will now face Kevin Holland in a middleweight matchup on Aug. 4, the UFC announced on Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series on Tuesday.
Santos (17-6) is looking to bounce back from a loss to David Branch at UFC Fight Night 128 this past April. He has won four of his past five fights.
Holland (12-3) picked up on a win on the opening show of the second season of DWTNCS in his last outing. He has won four straight fights.
Also, Contender Series alum Montell Jackson will now face Ricky Simon with Benito Lopez’s departure from the card. This change was also announced on DWTNCS.
