Sources close to the Fight Night event confirmed today that Charles Oliveira will replace Matt Wiman to face Efrain Escudero. The match was supposed to be a Mac Danzig versus Matt Wiman fight. But Mac Danzig was forced to withdraw from the co-main event. Then Escudero was called to replace Danzig. Unfortunately for Escudero, he was left without an opponent as Matt Wiman broke his arm. The UFC match maker Joe Silva comes into the scene by pairing Escudero with Charles Oliveira. Charles Oliveira (13-0) just made his debut at the UFC on Versus Two last August 1.
