A new fight has been booked for UFC on FX 6 in Brisbane, Australia. The original matchup between Ednaldo Oliveira and Krzysztof Soszynski has been replaced with newcomer Eddie Mendez taking on Canadian LHW Nick Penner. MMA Junkie has the story:
A light-heavyweight bout between Eddie Mendez (7-0-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC) and Nick Penner (11-2 MMA, 0-1 UFC) is the latest addition to next month's UFC on FX 6 event in Australia.
Mendez replaces injured Ednaldo Oliveira (13-1-1 MMA, 0-1 UFC), and Penner evidently replaces Krzysztof Soszynski (26-12-1 MMA, 6-3 UFC), though no reason was given for his withdrawal.
UFC officials announced the new bout overnight.
UFC on FX 6 airs on December 14th (15th in Australia), and the preliminary card will be broadcast on FUEL TV.
