Just six days before the show, UFC Fight Night 137 has had another change to its main event.

Jimi Manuwa (17-4 MMA, 6-4 UFC) is out of the light heavyweight headliner against Thiago “Marreta” Santos (18-6 MMA, 10-5 UFC) in Brazil. But stepping in on short notice for Manuwa will be Eryk Anders (11-1 MMA, 3-1 UFC), multiple people with knowledge of the new booking today told MMAjunkie.

UFC officials have not yet made a formal announcement of the change for the card, which takes place Saturday at Ibirapuera Gymnasium in Sao Paulo. The main card airs on FS1 following prelims on FS2 and UFC Fight Pass.

Damn that's a huge step up for Anders, given the size difference

I think they’re about the same size. Santos only just moved up to 205 and Anders looks like he walks around well about 205 anyway.
