jason-high-2.jpgJason High (16-3 MMA, 0-1 UFC) has replaced John Hathaway (17-1 MMA, 7-1 UFC) and now meets fellow welterweight Erick Silva (14-3 MMA, 2-2 UFC) at UFC on FUEL TV 10.

High, who initially was slated to fight Ildemar Alcantara (18-5 MMA, 1-0 UFC) on the card, today announced the change via Twitter. UFC officials subsequently made a formal announcement.

UFC on FUEL TV 10, which also serves as the finale of “The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 2,” takes place June 8 at Ginasio Paulo Sarasate in Fortaleza, Ceara, Brazil.

High vs. Silva is slated for the FUEL TV-televised main card. That’s a promotion for High, who initially was slated to fight Alcantara on the Facebook-streamed prelims.

Hathaway later took to Twitter and said he’s suffering from ulcerative colitis, a form of colitis, which attacks the colon.

Alcantara, who recently defeated Wagner Prado in his UFC debut, now will fight UFC newcomer and undefeated submission specialist Leandro “Buscape” Silva (11-0-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC).

Silva, who recently was forced to pull out of a UFC 156 bout with Jay Hieron due to an injury, returns to the cage following a loss to Jon Fitch that most observers consider his first true defeat inside the octagon. Fitch outpointed the Brazilian at UFC 153 this past October. Prior to that, Silva went 2-1 with the UFC with a questionable disqualification loss to Carlo Prater.

High returns to the UFC for the first time since a 0-1 stint in 2010 that included a decision loss to Charlie Brennaman. Since then, the California-based fighter has posted seven consecutive victories. He topped Jordan Mein at a regional show in Canada, edged Hayato Sakurai via split decision in DREAM, and also picked up recent Strikeforce wins over Quinn Mulhern, Todd Moore and Nate Moore.

The latest UFC on FUEL TV 10 card now includes:

MAIN CARD (FUEL TV, 8 p.m. ET)

PRELIMINARY CARD (Facebook, 4:30 p.m. ET)
