Two Late Changes to Pittsburgh Card

Due to illness and injury, respectively, bantamweight contender John Lineker and middleweight veteran Trevor Smith have both been late scratches to Sunday's UFC Fight Night event in Pittsburgh, but the promotion's matchmakers have salvaged both fights at Consol Energy Center.

In a bantamweight bout, Augusto "Tanquinho" Mendes will make his Octagon debut against hard-hitting Cody Garbrandt. And in middleweight action, Anthony "Lionheart" Smith, fresh from a TKO win over Josh Neer, will return to the Octagon and put his seven-fight winning streak on the line against newcomer Leonardo Augusto Leleco.

In the UFC Fight Night main event, which airs live on FOX Sports 1, Donald Cerrone moves up to the welterweight division to face Alex Oliveira.
