UFC Live on Versus 2: Charles Oliveira vs. Darren ElkinsFresh off his successful UFC debut earlier this month, lightweight Charles Oliveira has replaced an injured Matt Wiman and will face Efrain Escudero at UFC Fight Night 22 on September 15 in Austin, Texas, according to MMA Weekly.

Wiman was forced to withdraw from the Spike-televised co-main event on Thursday, just one day after Escudero replaced original opponent Mac Danzig.

Oliveira (13-0) remained undefeated at UFC on Versus 2 on Aug. 1 as he scored “Submission of the Night” honors for his 41-second armbar of Darren Elkins.

The Ultimate Fighter 8 winner Escudero (13-1) rebounded from a January loss to Evan Dunham with a unanimous decision over Dan Lauzon in May.

The UFC Fight Night 22 fight card is headlined by Nate Marquardt vs. Rousimar Palhares and also includes Gleison Tibau vs. Jim Miller and Ross Pearson vs. Cole Miller.
