Change Made To UFC 198 Card, Kamaru Usman Removed

An injury to Kamaru Usman has opened the door for Luan Chagas to make his UFC debut later this month.

Chagas will take on Sergio Moraes at UFC 198 from Brazil, according to a report by MMAjunkie.

Riding a nine-fight win streak, Chagas (14-1) will look to continue a run that includes all 15 of his pro fights being finishes. Moraes (10-2) has claimed four of five inside the Octagon, including each of his last four.

UFC 198 takes place May 14 from the Arena da Baixada in Curitiba, Brazil and features Fabricio Werdum defending his heavyweight title against Stipe Miocic, Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza vs. Vitor Belfort, Anderson Silva-Uriah Hall and the UFC debut of Cris “Cyborg” Justino.
