Brandon Davis will welcome Giga Chikadze to the Octagon in a short-notice bout at UFC Fight Night 160 in Copenhagen on Sept. 28.
Bloody Elbow first reported the news. UFC Fight Night 160 is headlined by a middleweight tilt pitting Jack Hermansson against Jared Cannonier.
Chikadze says the Davis fight came together rather quickly.
“I just signed a contract a few days ago. My opponent was supposed to be Mike Davis, but it looks like he was unhealthy and he was having some kind of problems in health. They just switched opponent with the same last name, just different name. Brandon Davis will be my opponent,” Chikadze said.
Davis is coming off of a loss to Kyung Ho Kang at UFC 241. The 29-year-old is 2-4 inside the Octagon with his other win coming over Steven Peterson. Davis was signed to the promotion after beating Austin Arnett in the first season of the Contender Series.
Chikadze, meanwhile, is set for his UFC debut after 31-year-old picked up two wins in Gladiator Challenge. The former Glory Kickboxer is 7-2 in MMA overall.
