UFC On Versus 5 Fight Card: Charlies Oliveria In For Injured Paul Taylor Against Donald Cerrone

Injuries continue to plague the UFC's summer matchmaking efforts, but this time the injury replacement arguably enhances the quality of the card. According to the UFC's Twitter feed, Paul Taylor - who replacing John Makdessi - is out his bout with Donald Cerrone at UFC on Versus 5. Filling in will be UFC on Versus 4 competitor Charles Oliveira. To wit:

AND THEN Paul Taylor got injured so now it's Charles Oliveira vs. Donald Cerrone in August and FOTN much!?!? @cowboycerrone @C_Oliveira_UFCless than a minute ago via web Favorite Retweet Reply


Oliveira enters this bout after having his initial victory over Nik Lentz at UFC on Versus 4 turned into a 'no contest'. Oliveira hurt Lentz with an illegal knee before applying a fight-ending rear naked choke submission.

Cerrone enters this bout having most-recently defeated Wagner Rocha at UFC 131 in June.
