Unbeaten Mendes in for Hettes against Rosa

The injury bug has bit this Sunday's UFC Fight Night card once more, with featherweight prospect Jimy Hettes the victim, as he has been forced out of his bout against Charles Rosa at TD Garden in Boston.

Stepping in for Hettes will be Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt Augusto "Tanquinho" Mendes, who brings a perfect 5-0 record with five finishes into his Octagon debut this weekend.

The FOX Sports 1-televised event is headlined by the UFC bantamweight title fight pitting TJ Dillashaw against Dominick Cruz.
