As I reported on Twitter, heavyweight Chase Sherman has stepped up on short notice to confront Dmitry Poberezhets in UFC 211 following month in Dallas. Sherman (9-3) replaces the wounded Jarjis Danho in this struggle and will be searching for his first UFC success. The 27-year-old has gone 0-2 in the UFC, dropping back-to-back conflicts against Justin Ledet and many recently Walt Harris in UFC Fight Night 103 at January. Meanwhile, Poberezhets (24-5-1) makes his promotional and North American debut on the heels of a 15-fight unbeaten series. The Ukrainian fighter hasn’t lost a fight since 2012.

Here’s an official statement from the UFC: In November 2016, welterweight Michael Graves was removed from his UFC bout after his arrest in Fulton County, Florida. As a potential violation of this UFC Fighter Conduct Policy, the UFC organization temporarily barred Graves from contest pending the completion of a third party investigation. Based on the findings of the thorough review and investigation, UFC has suggested Graves that he has been released from his contract effective immediately. UFC requires all athletes to behave in an ethical and accountable manner, as mandated by the UFC Fighter Conduct Policy. UFC retains its athletes to the maximum standard and will continue to take proper action if and when warranted.
