Thiago Tavares UFC 94
An injury has forced Dennis Hallman out of his UFC on Fox 3 bout against Ultimate Fighter winner Tony Ferguson. In to replace him will be Brazilian Thiago Tavares.

Sources confirmed the new bout to MMAWeekly.com on Friday. Tatame.com first reported the switch.

Currently riding a two-fight win streak, Tavares found a comfort fighting back home in Brazil where he’s picked up those back-to-back wins.

At UFC 134 last year, Tavares TKO’d the always tough Spencer Fisher, and then returned to his home land in January at UFC 142 where he picked up a unanimous decision over Sam Stout.

Now Tavares will face former Ultimate Fighter winner Tony Ferguson who is undefeated since winning the reality show last year.

The fight between Tavares and Ferguson will be on the undercard for the UFC on Fox 3 event airing on May 5 from the IZOD Center in East Rutherford, N.J.
