It appears as though Charles Oliveira will step in for Bobby Green and face Clay Guida at UFC 225.
Guida revealed the change via Instagram, and the new bout was subsequently confirmed by MMAjunkie.com. The promotion has not officially announced the matchup. UFC 225 takes place at the United Center in Chicago on June 9 and is headlined by a middleweight title clash between Robert Whittaker and Yoel Romero.
Oliveira, 28, has lost three of his last four Octagon appearances, including a second-round TKO defeat at the hands of Paul Felder in his most recent appearance at UFC 218. “Do Bronx” does own a first-round submission of former Bellator champ Will Brooks at UFC 210 during that stretch.
Guida is coming off back-to-back wins over Joe Lauzon and Erik Koch in 2017. “The Carpenter” is 14-11 during his promotional tenure and 34-17 as a professional overall.
