Augusto Mendes will have his UFC debut on short notice as he agreed to face Cody Garbrandt on February 21 after John Lineker had to pull out due to sickness.

 

The 32-year old and 5-0 Mendes was supposed to debut in the UFC at UFC Fight Night 81, on January 17, against Jimy Hettes, but a rib injury forced him out of the contest. Fully healed, he will now test himself on short notice against a fellow undefeated, although more experienced opponent.
