UFC Fight Night 95 on Sept. 24 in Brazil gets a massive makeover amidst multiple injuries

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

It's no secret that mixed martial arts (MMA) is as unpredictable as the weather. So for those who are surprised that Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) announced earlier this week that UFC Fight Night 95 received some changes to its card, maybe MMA isn't the sport for you.

In order to suffice for a ton of injuries, UFC did some sifting and shifting to round out UFC Fight Night 95, which takes places on Sept. 24 from Nilson Nelson Gymnasium in Brasilia, Brazil. The most prominent change comes as Welterweight Brandon Thatch pulls out of his bout with Erick Silva, leaving the Brazilian to face Luan Chagas, who saw his opponent, Shinsho Anzai, also pull out due to injury.

Other changes to hit the Brasilia card include Godofredo Pepey filling in for the injured Renato Moicano against Mike De La Torre and TUF: Brazil winner Glaico Franco stepping in for the injured Joaquim Silva in a Lightweight scrap opposite undefeated prospect Gegor Gillespie.

UFC Fight Night 95 will be headlined by current Invicta FC women's Featherweight champion Cris Cyborg as the Brazilian attempts to win her second Octagon appearance opposite Swedish striker Lina Lansberg.
