Charles Rosa has yet another new opponent for Sunday’s UFC Fight Night 81 event in Boston, as an injury to Augusto Mendes has forced him out just days after stepping in as an injury replacement for Jimy Hettes.
The UFC announced on Thursday that Rosa will now welcome unbeaten Boston native Kyle Bochniak to the UFC.
Bochniak fights just nine days after his most recent win, having scored a first round submission win last Friday night. At 6-0, Bochniak has stopped four of those opponents, two each by submission and by (T)KO.
Rosa, himself from Massachusetts, is looking to bounce back from a split decision loss to Yair Rodriguez in his most recent fight in June of last year.
Sunday’s UFC Fight Night 81 event airs live on Fox Sports 1, headlined by the UFC Bantamweight Championship bout between T.J. Dillashaw and Dominick Cruz.
