UFC middleweight Oluwale Bamgbose has stepped up after getting a call to replace an injured Caio Magalhaes at UFC’s Tampa event on April 16. Bamgbose will face Cezar “Mutante” Ferreira at the Amalie Arena in Florida on less than two week’s notice.
In the UFC on FOX main event, former UFC light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans faces top five contender Glover Teixeira.
Bambgbose is coming off a one-minute knockout of Daniel Sarafian in February which marked his first UFC win. His opponent, a former TUF winner returns to the middleweight division in his adopted homestate of Florida.
