Mike Brown out of UFC on Fox 11, Alex White In Against Payan
On Friday night, UFC officials announced that Estevan Payan had lost yet another opponent for the UFC on Fox 11 card. He was previously matched up against Mike Brown, who is now out due to injury, but is instead facing Alex White in the Octagon.
White (9-0) has been very successful while making his rounds on the MMA circuit, finishing eight of his nine bouts (5 submission finishes and 3 TKOs). Now he has the chance to debut in the UFC against Payan.
Payan (14-5-1NC) is looking a little less stellar as he’s coming off of back-to-back losses, his last occurring at UFC 168 against Robbie Peralta.
