Jarjis Danho has suffered an injury and he is off the upcoming UFC 211 card, replacing him against Dmitry Poberezhets will be Chase Sherman.
Poberezhets (24-5-1-1NC) will be making his UFC debut in this fight and he will be doing so on the strength of a thirteen fight winning streak, a winning streak that has lasted nearly five years. Poberezhets fought UFC veteran Daniel Omielanczuk at a January 2011 Fight On The East MMA event, the two fought to a draw. Poberezhets also held The Zone MMA Heavyweight Title, but he never actually defended the gold since winning it in November 2012 and he hasn’t competed in the promotion in over four years.
Sherman (9-3-0) is currently winless under the UFC banner, having dropped fights to Justin Ledet and Walt Harris. Sherman also competed once in the Titan Fighting Championships, defeating UFC veteran Jack May by first round TKO. Sherman has also seen ten of his twelve fights end within the opening round and only one of his professional MMA fights went the distance.
UFC 211 takes place on Saturday, May 13 from the American Airlines Arena in Dallas, Texas with Stipe Miocic and Junior Dos Santos headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, with a post-show podcast to follow.
