News broke Wednesday evening that Lyman Good was forced out of his UFC FN 80 bout against Omari Akhmedov for reasons that were not disclosed.

As a result Sergio Moraes has stepped in on short notice to fight Akhmedov on December 10th in Las Vegas.

Moraes is currently riding a 3-fight win streak that saw him pick up a unanimous decision win over Mickael Lebout back in April. The bout was Moraes’ first back in the Octagon in nearly 2 years after withdrawing from multiple fights for undisclosed reasons.

Akhmedov on the other hand is riding a 2-fight win streak that most recently saw him pick up a TKO win over Brian Ebersole after injuring Ebersole’s leg with leg kicks.

UFC FN 80 will be headlined by a UFC women’s strawweight bout between Rose Namajunas and Paige VanZant.
