Bamgbose steps up again on short notice to face Ferreira at UFC on FOX 19

The injury bug strikes again, this time for Caio Magalhaes, who was supposed to face Cezar Ferreira (6-1-0) at UFC on FOX 19.

Magalhaes posted pictures on Instagram of his foot injury.

But Oluwale Bambgose (8-5-0) answered the call and will replace him.

UFC on FOX 19 goes down April 16th from the Amalie Arena in Tampa Bay, Florida. The card has a few other changes as Rashad Evans takes on Glover Teixeira in a modified main event due to Tony Ferguson being scratched.

Ferguson’s opponent, Khabib Nurmagomedov will fight Darrell Horcher in the co-main event.

Bamgbose took the Uriah Hall fight on short notice as well, suffering the first loss of his career in TKO fashion, but bounced back to earn a TKO win over Daniel Sarafian at UFC Fight Night 83.

Ferreira is trying to reverse a two-fight losing skid.
