ufc fight night 83

Cody Garbrandt will indeed remain on this Sunday’s UFC Fight Night 83 card, as Augusto Mendes has been signed to replace John Lineker.

Set for the Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh, the card boasts a headline fight pitting Donald Cerrone vs. Alex Oliveira.

Mendes (5-0) comes over from Legacy FC and will be stepping in for Lineker after he was forced out due to contracting dengue fever.
