UFC Fight Night 59 has received a line-up change, as the promotion has announced Gleison Tibau is stepping in for the injured Jorge Masvidal.

The latter was scheduled to fight Norman Parke at the January 18th card, but a back injury has forced him to withdraw.

Tibau (32-10) is coming off consecutive, victories over Pat Healy and Piotr Hallmann, and is 4-1 in his last 5 scraps.

Parke (20-2-1) is currently riding an 11 fight undefeated streak, and has gone 4-0-1 in the UFC to date.

UFC FN 59 will be hosted by Boston’s TD Garden and will feature Conor McGregor taking on Dennis Siver in the headliner.
