Sabah Homasi has suffered an undisclosed injury and he is out of UFC 207. Replacing him against Brandon Thatch will be Niko Price.
Price (8-0-0) will be making his UFC debut in this fight, after spending his entire eight fight career in Fight Time Promotions. Price has only seen one of his eight professional MMA fights go that distance, that came against Willie Hosch at Fight Time Promotions 32 earlier this year. Price is also the current Fight Time Promotions Welterweight Champion, he will be relinquishing the title now that he is a part of the UFC.
Thatch (11-4-0) will enter the fight riding a three fight losing streak, dropping fights to former UFC Lightweight Champion Ben Henderson, Gunnar Nelson and Siyar Bahadurzada. It has been over three years since Thatch last earned a victory, that win came over Paulo Thiago at UFC Fight Night 32 in 2013. Thatch is also a former Resurrection Fighting Alliance Welterweight Champion, he defeated fellow UFC veteran Mike Rhodes to win the belt at RFA 7.
UFC 207 takes place on Friday, December 30 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada with Amanda Nunes and Ronda Rousey in the main event.
