Brandon Davis apparently isn’t wasting any time trying to rebound from a UFC-debut loss a few weeks ago.
Davis (8-3 MMA, 0-1 UFC) today announced via social media that he’s replaced Humberto Bandenay (14-4 MMA, 1-0 UFC) and now fights featherweight Steven Peterson (16-6 MMA, 0-0 UFC) at UFC Fight Night 126 (via Instagram):
A rep for Bandenay told MMAjunkie the fighter couldn’t travel to the event due to visa issues. MMA reporter Nolan King first reported Davis as a replacement.
UFC Fight Night 126 takes place Feb. 18 at Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas. It airs on FS1 following early prelims on UFC Fight Pass, though the full fight card and bout order haven’t been finalized.
Davis, who got a UFC deal after defeating Austin Arnett at an August 2017 Dana White’s Contender Series event, was riding a seven-fight winning streak into his UFC 220 bout with Kyle Bochniak. But the 27-year-old suffered a unanimous-decision loss to Kyle Bochniak in the featured FS1 prelim on the pay-per-view event.
Peterson, a UFC newcomer, arrives to the octagon after an unsuccessful turn at a Dana White’s Contender Series event, where he dropped a split decision to Benito Lopez. The 27-year-old, who’s a Bellator and Legacy FC vet, rebounded in December with a second-round TKO win over Dustin Winter at LFA 28. He’s won eight of his past 10 fights – six via stoppage.
The full UFC Fight Night 126 lineup now includes:
MAIN CARD (FS1, 9 p.m. ET)
PRELIMINARY CARD (FS1, 7 p.m. ET)
PRELIMINARY CARD (UFC Fight Pass, 6 p.m. ET)
