Australian based American Brian Ebersole is expected to replace the injured Carlos Condit on the UFC 127 card where he will come up against UFC veteran Chris Lytle.
With the step-up, Ebersole will no longer partake in the Fate MMA 2 card where he was originally slated to face Victoria's Leigh Allwood in the main event.
Ebersole has lost only one fight in his last 12 bouts, with that coming to the heavier Hector Lombard.
