Dennis Siver's Opponent Change In Stockholm

 

The UFC today announced that American Charles Rosa will step in, with just a week’s notice, to face Dennis Siver at UFC Fight Night Stockholm presented by Unibet.

The change comes following a ruling by the Swedish Mixed Martial Arts Federation regarding Taylor Lapilus, who was due to fight Siver on 4 October.

The Swedish Mixed Martial Arts Federation ruled that Lapilus, fighting out of Paris France, was not a suitable opponent for Siver.

Featherweight Charles Rosa who fights out of Boynton Beach, Florida, has a 9-0 record and steps in at short notice to make his debut at the UFC’s highly anticipated return to Stockholm, Sweden.

Lapilus remains a UFC fighter and will compete at a later date.

Media should contact the Swedish Mixed Martial Arts Federation for more information.
