With Poland's Lukasz Sajewski forced from his Feb. 27 bout against Teemu Packalen due to injury, France's Thibault Gouti will step in to keep the all-European lightweight battle intact as he faces the prospect from Finland at London's O2 Arena.
The UFC Fight Night event, which is headlined by the bout between Anderson Silva and Michael Bisping, will air in its entirety exclusively on UFC FIGHT PASS, the UFC's digital streaming service.
Unbeaten in 11 pro fights, Gouti has finished his last five opponents, most notably scoring a third-round knockout of UFC veteran Anton Kuivanen last November that earned him a call to the big show. Sajewski has also impressed thus far, winning 13 of 14 bouts, seven of them ending via submission.
