Derek Brunson out, Jack Hermansson now faces Roman Dolidze at UFC Orlando

An undisclosed wound has forced Derek Brunson to withdraw from UFC Orlando. In his arena goes Roman Dolidze, who will face Jack Hermansson on the Dec. 3 tournament.

A pair of of us with records of the shift confirmed the news to MMA Combating following an initial account from ESPN.com. The Dolidze vs. Hermansson fight may perhaps support on the ESPN-televised critical card from Amway Center.

UFC Orlando is headlined by a welterweight fight between two-time title challenger Stephen Thompson and Kevin Holland.

Dolidze makes a rapid turnaround after an spectacular showing this past month at UFC Vegas 63, where he stopped Phil Hawes by knockout. It was his third straight expend since a resolution setback against Trevin Giles and improved his octagon account to 5-1.

Hermansson is four months removed from a resolution over short-locate change Chris Curtis, which save him serve within the expend column after a 1-3 skid sapped his hopes of a title shot.
