Basically yes but not necessarily because Gegards riding off a big win but rather just because one guys strengths play to the others weakness.

I literally called this as soon as I heard about the cut.

I knew they would have to get a Superior Challenge guy.

When this happened I assumed it would either be Ilir or Max Nunes. Now do I think Gegard will win the fight? Yes. However let me make this clear Ilir is a good fighter. He is a tank. So I wouldn't make a preconception that he is going to get smashed. I mean crazier things have happend. I.E GSP/Serra, Story/Brenneman, Silva/Chael

Meh... At least we get to see Gegard fight in the UFC finally. Definitely a less than stellar replacement though.

Do you really consider this to be "fighting in the UFC"? This is a lower caliber opponent than Strikeforce, the dude is not a UFC fighter.

I do consider it fighting in the UFC because well... He is fighting in the UFC. I already mentioned that it wasn't a good replacement, but it is nice knowing that Gegard is finally in the UFC and will get to test himself against the best.

I'm sure the UFC will hype it up as the underdog story it is. Who knows... could become the story of the evening.
