UFC newcomer Mike Stumpf has agreed to fill a vacant spot left by Cesar Gracie product, Ninja Roberts on just six days notice.
A reason for Roberts’s absence is currently unknown.
“UFC Fight Night 25: Shields vs. Ellenberger” is set to take place from the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans. The card will feature a welterweight attraction in the form of Jake Shields vs. Jake Ellenberger in the night’s main event live on Spike TV.
Stumpf recently returned to action after an almost three-year layoff with a win under the XFO banner. He is a one-time EliteXC fighter and currently holds an 11-2 professional Mixed Martial Arts Record.
