Andre Fili replaces Charles Oliveira, will fight Jeremy Larsen at UFC 166

Featherweight Andre Fili is scheduled to face Jeremy Larsen at UFC 166 on Oct. 19 in Houston.

Fili, who has won eight straight fights and is 12-1 overall, will be making his UFC debut.

Larsen was originally set to face Matt Grice, but Grice was seriously injured in a car accident. Charles Oliveira replaced Grice, but he had to pull out of the fight with an injury.

Larsen is 0-2 during his UFC tenure. He was knocked out by Lucas Martins in the third round at UFC on FX 8 in his last Octagon appearance.

UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez will defend his title against Junior dos Santos in the main event.
