Guilherme Cruz, MMA Fighting

Another injury has changed the next UFC card in Brazil.

Sources close to the situation revealed to MMAFighting.com that Marcelo Guimaraes was forced to withdraw from the event with an elbow injury. The UFC signed Ivan "Batman" Jorge to replace him against Keith Wisniewski.

UFC Fight Night 28 takes place in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, on Sept. 4, 2013.

"Batman," 24-3 in MMA, makes his UFC debut riding a six-fight win streak, all via finish. In his last appearance, in June, Jorge seized Lucio Abreu’s lightweight Jungle Fight title with a first-round rear-naked choke. Thirteen of Jorge’s 24 professional wins came by submission.

Wisniewski earned his second chance in the UFC after six consecutive wins in small promotions throughout the United States, but subsequently suffered back-to-back losses to Josh Neer and Chris Clements. Like Jorge, he won most of his fights on the ground with 15 submissions in 28 victories.
