Godbeer-Harris rebooked for UFC 217, Hendricks-Borrachinha rounds out main card

A heavyweight matchup expected to take place at UFC 216 has been booked again for UFC 217, instead.

UFC officials today announced that Mark Godbeer and Walt Harris fill face off on the FS1-televised prelims of next month’s UFC 217 event, which takes place Nov. 4 at Madison Square Garden in New York.

With the new contest, a middleweight matchup between Johny Hendricks (18-7 MMA, 13-7 UFC) and Paulo Borrachinha (10-0 MMA, 2-0 UFC) has been moved up to the evening’s pay-per-view main card.

Godbeer and Harris were slated to meet at this past weekend’s UFC 216 before a Derrick Lewis back injury flared up the day of the contest, and Harris was plucked from the prelim bout and placed into a main card matchup with top contender Fabricio Werdum, who needed just 65 seconds to finish the fight via armbar.

Hendricks will look to untie the 1-1 record that he’s amassed since moving up to the UFC’s middleweight division. After a decision win over Hector Lombard at UFC Fight Night 105, Hendricks was knocked out by Tim Boetsch in the second round of their UFC Fight Night 112 encounter.

Borrachinha, in turn, comes impressive off back-to-back UFC wins – which cap off an undefeated professional record. The 25-year-old fighter followed a quick knockout over Garreth McLellan, at UFC Fight Night 106, with another TKO, this time over Oluwale Bamgbose, at June’s UFC 212. He has finished all of his fights to date.
