Dmitry Sosnovskiy has been pulled from UFC Fight Night Fortaleza due to undisclosed issues and replacing him against Junior Albini according to Farah Hannoun is Jairzinho Rozenstruik.

Albini (14-4-0) has won just one of three fights during his UFC tenure and that lone win came over Timothy Johnson at UFC on Fox 25. Albini has been winless in his home country of Brazil since signing with the UFC last year, having lost at UFC 224 earlier this year. Albini has suffered four losses as a professional MMA fighter, but he has yet to be beaten by way of KO/TKO.
