There has been a late change to the UFC Fight Night 127 lineup, as Nad Narimani will step in for the injured Alex Reyes and face Nasrat Haqparast on Saturday in London.
Promotion officials announced the new bout on Tuesday. UFC Fight Night 127 takes place at the O2 Arena and is headlined by a heavyweight clash between Fabricio Werdum and Alexander Volkov. The card will stream in its entirety on UFC Fight Pass.
Narimani captured the Cage Warriors featherweight crown with a five-round verdict over highly-regarded prospect Paddy Pimblett last April. The 30-year-old Englishman has won three straights overall and owns a 10-2 career mark.
Haqparast, meanwhile, saw an eight-bout winning streak come to an end in his Octagon debut at UFC Fight Night 118, where he dropped a three-round verdict against Marcin Held.
