Bader Replaces Gustafsson in Sao Paulo Main Event

With Alexander Gustafsson forced to withdraw from his UFC Fight Night main event against Rogerio Nogueira due to injury, No. 4-ranked contender Ryan Bader has stepped up to face "Lil' Nog" in a rematch of their 2010 bout on November 19 in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

The five-round main event, which takes place at Ginásio do Ibirapuera, will air live on FS1.

A former Ultimate Fighter winner who has emerged victorious in six of his last seven bouts, Arizona's Bader earned his first Performance of the Night bonus in his most recent bout, as he knocked out Ilir Latifi in the second round on September 3. Now he will look to keep the momentum going by scoring a second win over the No. 9-ranked Nogueira, who he decisioned in 2010. Since that defeat, Nogueira has scored wins over Tito Ortiz, Rashad Evans and Patrick Cummins, and he's eager for a little payback this November.
