With British light heavyweight Jimi Manuwa forced to withdraw from his UFC Fight Night main event on November 8 against Mauricio "Shogun" Rua due to a broken foot, co-main eventer Ovince Saint Preux will now step up to face the Brazilian icon in the five-round headlining bout.
Saint Preux' original opponent, Francimar Barroso will still be at the event as a backup in case of a last minute injury. The flyweight bout between Ian McCall and John Lineker will now serve as the co-main event.
