There’s been another shake-up to the UFC Fight Night 184 lineup.
Promotional newcomer Denys Bondar has withdrawn from Saturday’s event for unknown reasons and has been replaced by Dana White’s Contender Series alum Jerome Rivera, who will now face Ode Osbourne in a featherweight matchup at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas.
The UFC announced the news Tuesday.
Rivera (10-4 MMA, 0-2 UFC) and Osbourne (8-3 MMA, 0-1 UFC) were scheduled to fight Jan. 20 at UFC on ESPN 20 before Osbourne pulled out for unknown reasons. That fight was scheduled to take place at flyweight – two weight classes below Saturday’s scheduled fight.
Both Rivera and Osbourne are in search of their first promotional victories.
With the change, the UFC Fight Night 184 lineup includes:
MAIN CARD (ESPN+, 8 p.m. ET)
Alistair Overeem vs. Alexander Volkov
Frankie Edgar vs. Cory Sandhagen
Macy Chiasson vs. Marion Reneau
Manel Kape vs. Alexandre Pantoja
