Octagon newcomer Mickael Lebout will replace Gasan Umalatov and face Sergio Moraes at UFC Fight Night in Poland.

Promotion officials announced the change on Saturday. The UFC Fight Night card takes place at Krakow Arena in Krakow, Poland, on April 11 and is headlined by a heavyweight rematch between Gabriel Gonzaga and Mirko Filipovic.

A 27-year-old native of Paris, Lebout has won six straight fights entering his UFC debut. The Crossfight product is 13-3-1 overall and has finished six of his opponents via submission.

Moraes has not competed since August 2013 but enters the bout on a two-fight winning streak, with victories over Renee Forte and Neil Magny in his last two UFC appearances.

Umalatov has lost two of his last three, including a split-decision setback to Cathal Pendred in his most recent outing at UFC Fight Night “Nelson vs. Story.”
