As previously reported, Luke Rockhold was forced to withdraw from his scheduled fight with Chris Weidman at UFC 230 due to a knee injury. Rockhold was replaced by Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza for the bout. As a result, Dave Branch will have a new opponent for the card in Jared Cannonier, per ESPN’s Brett Okamoto after speaking to UFC President Dana White.

Jacare was originally going to face Branch for the fight card before the switch. Cannonier has lost his last two fights against Dominick Reyes and Jan Blachowicz. Dave Branch is looking to maintain his momentum after an April knockout win over Thiago Santos.

UFC 230 is set for November 3 at the Madison Square Garden in New York City, New York. The event will be broadcast live on pay-per-view. Prelims will be shown on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.
