Bobby Green has been forced to withdraw from his UFC Fight Night 63 match-up against Benson Henderson, stepping in for him is American Top Team’s Jorge Masvidal.
UFC officials announced the change of opponents with FOX Sports.
With Bobby Green out, Benson Henderson now faces Jorge Masvidal at UFC Fight Night 63
Masvidal (27-8) was once a contender under the Strikeforce banner, even vying for the title against Gilbert Melendez back in 2011. Since that title loss, Masvidal has gone 5-1 with four victories in the UFC. Most recently Masvidal earned a unanimous decision victory against James Krause. That bout was his third straight win.
Henderson (21-5) has lost back-to-back fights for the first time in his MMA career. Since losing his 155-pound title, he has lost to Rafael dos Anjos and a very close decision loss to Donald Cerrone at UFC Fight Night 59 earlier this month.
UFC Fight Night 63 goes down on April 4 from the Patriot Center in Fairfax, Virginia. Headlining the Fight Night is a featherweight showdown between Chad Mendes and Ricardo Lamas.
