Bobby Green will step in for Rodrigo Vargas and square off against Alan Patrick Silva Alves at UFC Fight Night 177.
Promotion officials announced the change in the lightweight bout on Wednesday. Vargas withdrew from the contest for undisclosed reasons. UFC Fight Night 177 takes place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas on Sept. 12 and is headlined by a light heavyweight scrap pitting Thiago Santos against Glover Teixeira.
Green is 2-0 thus far during his 2020 campaign after earning unanimous decision triumphs against Clay Guida at UFC on ESPN 11 and against Lando Vannata at UFC Fight Night 173. Prior to that, the former King of the Cage champion had been victorious in just one of his previous seven promotional appearances.
Patrick had a three-bout winning streak snapped at UFC 229, where he was knocked out by Scott Holtzman in the third round of their October 2018 clash. The 37-year-old Brazilian has not competed since then.
