Salim Touahri has replaced Jim Wallhead and will square off against Warlley Alves at UFC Fight Night 118 on Saturday.
Multiple outlets confirmed the new opponent following an initial report from Combate. UFC Fight Night 118 takes place in Gdansk, Poland, and is headlined by a welterweight duel between Donald Cerrone and Darren Till. The card will stream in its entirety on UFC Fight Pass.
A 28-year-old native of Cracow, Poland, Touahri has compiled a 10-1 professional mark, including six wins via KO/TKO and two by submission. He last appeared at Tech-Krep FC “Prime Selection 2016 Final” on Oct. 29, 2016, when he knocked out Bayzet Khatkhokhu in the opening stanza.
Alves enters the matchup on a two-bout skid after dropping back-to-back decisions against Kamaru Usman and Colby Covington.
