UFC FN 56: Dhiego Lima Reporting New Opponent
By FCF Staff
It looks like Dhiego Lima has a new opponent, just days out from when he’s scheduled to fight at UFC Fight Night 56 this Saturday, as the welterweight is reporting Pawel Pawlak has withdrawn due to injury.
According to Lima, he will now face Jorge “Blade” Oliveira on November 8th, who will be making his Octagon debut.

Lima (9-2) is coming off a stoppage loss to Eddie Gordon in the finals for the TUF 19 Competition, which ended his three fight winning streak.
Oliveira (7-0) hasn’t fought since last December when he TKO’d Alex Oliveira while competing for The Gladiator King.
UFC FN 56 will go down in Uberlandia, Brazil and will feature “Shogun” Rua taking on Ovince St-Preux in the headliner.
