The UFC confirmed today that Brazilian middleweight Eryk Anders (11-2-0), fresh off a defeat to Thiago Santos at UFC Sao Paulo, will take on Canadian Elias Theodorou (15-2-0) at Toronto’s UFC 231 card.
Anders, 30, has lost two of his last three contests and is looking to return to the win column. He is replacing Antonio Carlos Jr., who pulled out of the fight in September with an injury.
