Adam Wieczorek replaces Ruslan Magomedov, faces Marcos Rogerio de Lima at UFC 230

The UFC 230 lineup continues to shuffle, and the latest change takes place in the heavyweight division.

UFC officials today announced that Poland’s Adam Wieczorek (10-1 MMA, 2-0 UFC) has stepped in on short notice to replace Russia’s Ruslan Magomedov and will now face Brazil’s Marcos Rogerio de Lima (15-5-1 MMA, 4-3 UFC) on the night’s UFC Fight Pass-streamed early prelims, which precede the evening’s FS1 prelims and pay-per-view main card.

MMAjunkie confirmed with Magomedov’s team that visa issues were to blame for his withdrawal.

UFC 230 takes place Nov. 3 at Madison Square Garden in New York.

Wieczorek carries a nine-fight winning streak to the cage, including a pair of UFC wins. Most recently, “Siwy” picked up an April submission win over Arjan Bhullar via omo plata, just the second such submission in UFC history. He now faces de Lima, who moves up to heavyweight after missing the mark at light heavyweight in his previous two UFC appearances. The Brazilian also fought most recently in April, suffering a Von Flue choke loss to Ovince Saint Preux.

With the change to the card, the latest UFC 230 lineup includes:

MAIN CARD (Pay-per-view, 10 p.m. ET)

  • Champ Daniel Cormier vs. Derrick Lewis – for heavyweight title
  • Ronaldo Souza vs. Chris Weidman
  • David Branch vs. Jared Cannonier
  • Jack Marshman vs. Karl Roberson
  • Israel Adesanya vs. Derek Brunson

PRELIMINARY CARD (FS1, 8 p.m. ET)
