After replacing the slots of John Makdessi and Paul Taylor on UFC on Versus 5, Donald Cerrone and Charles Oliveira's bout were moved to the event's main card.

The lightweight showdown between Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone and Charles Oliveira was moved to the UFC on Versus 5’s main card matches that will take place in Milwaukee.

However, the two fighters are not the original ones that are scheduled for the August card. The original fight was a showdown between John Makdessi and Paul Taylor. But the former had an injury that forced him to pull out from the said match. Then Donald Cerrone stepped in to replace him. Several days later, Paul Taylor was forced out of the bout and the UFC officials get Charles Oliveira to face the Cowboy.

Both fighters are widely known for their exciting and non-stop action performance on their every fights, and that’s the reason why the match between them was moved on the main card that will be televised for UFC on Versus 5. UFC on Versus 5 will take place on August 12 in Milwaukee at the Bradley Center.
