Maldanado steps in to Face Miocic

Fabio Maldonado In For JDS, Faces Miocic In ‘TUF Brazil 3 Finale’ Headliner

Brazilian slugger, Fabio Maldonado has stepped up to save ‘The Ultimate Fighter Brazil: Sonnen vs. Silva’ Finale event and will face Stipe Miocic in the evening’s headliner.

The Brazilian has agreed to move up to the UFC’s heavyweight division in order to make this bout a go.

The TUF Brazil 3 Finale event is set to take place on May 31 from Sao Paulo, Brazil.

News broke yesterday that former UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos was injured and out of his scheduled bout. With little time left, the UFC opted to use the lighter replacement instead of canceling the bout all together.

Maldonado brings in a three-fight winning streak as a UFC light-heavyweight.

Interesting Decision. Maldonado, is gonna get hit a lot, I think he likes getting hit. Not a terrible replacement but I think Miocic will look dominant in the end, maybe even finish him. Well, that is your main event.

Interesting matchup. Not exactly main event material, but considering no marquee HW names are available we fans could've been given worse.

Maldonado ain't no heavyweight... he wanted a big fight, looks like he has one. Honestly, he has nothing to lose...people won't (or shouldnt) judge him to harshly if he loses. Miocic on the other hand, has everything to lose... just winning won't do against this lhw...

Could have been an ideal time for the LHW title holder to test the waters. Can't believe there wasn't ONE HW replacement.

Don't really see how Fabio is going to win. I'd imagine he'd get double pay for his troubles.

Seems strange though that they'd potentially have a HW contender derailed by a LHW who'd only go back to his division afterwards.

I don't know anything about Brazilian laws... but i expect most wouldn't be able to get a visa to fight there on such short notice. So i wouldn't expect the pool of credible headliners was all that big.

And Maldonado looked fat at LHW.

Is this still the Main event?

Maldonado is tough as nails. Mad respect. He got his wish for an upper tier opponent, although at a higher weight class. It's a good thing he can take a beating because that's exactly what he's going to get.
