Bad news for Reza Madadi fans. It appears that the popular Swedish fighter won't be able to compete against Michael Chiesa at UFC on Fox 8 on July 27th due to some visa issues. He's been replaced by former Strikeforce title challenger Jorge Masvidal. The news came from UFC Tonight, who tweeted about it:
Masvidal (24-7) picked up his first UFC win over Tim Means at UFC on Fox 7 a few weeks ago. He will meet TUF 15 winner Chiesa (9-0), who is currently 2-0 in the UFC. He's coming off a submission win over Anton Kuivanen at UFC 157.
