The long search for an opponent to fight Alexander Gustafsson at UFC 227 finally is over. The two time UFC light heavyweight title challenger will now meet Volkan Oezdemir next month.

Originally scheduled to meet Mauricio Rua (25-10 MMA, 9-8 UFC) at UFC Fight Night 134 later this month, the UFC has decided to shift Oezdemir (15-2 MMA, 3-1 UFC) out of the headlining contest and into the slot against Gustafsson (18-4 MMA, 10-4 UFC). A replacement search is on for “Shogun,” who is expected to remain on the card.

With the addition, the UFC 227 card now includes:

Champ T.J. Dillashaw vs. Cody Garbrandt – for bantamweight title
Champ Demetrious Johnson vs. Henry Cejudo – for flyweight title
Alexander Gustafsson vs. Volkan Oezdemir
Derek Brunson vs. Antonio Carlos Junior
Renato Moicano vs. Cub Swanson
Irene Aldana vs. Bethe Correia
Wuliji Buren vs. Bharat Kandare
Danielle Taylor vs. Weili Zhang
Kyung Ho Kang vs. Ricardo Ramos
Benito Lopez vs. Ricky Simon
J.J. Aldrich vs. Polyana Viana
Brett Johns vs. Pedro Munhoz
