An injury to Akira Corassani has given Eric Wisely another chance to win his first fight in the UFC. Wisely will now meet Jason Young at UFC on Fuel 2. Corassani was knocked out of the Sweden-bound card earlier this month. The featured portion of the April 14 event will be featured on Fuel TV, while the prelims – where Young-Wisely takes place – will be streamed live on Facebook.
Wisely (19-7) lost in his UFC debut to Charles Oliveira by the rarely seen Calf Slicer. Meanwhile, Young is 8-5 overall but 0-2 inside the Octagon after facing tough draws in Dustin Poirier and Michihiro Omigawa.
UFC on Fuel 2 currently features a main event pitting Antonio Rogerio Nogueira against Alexander Gustafsson with Brian Stann vs. Alessio Sakara filling the co-headlining slot.
