Matt Brown may have dropped out, but the fight will go on for Carlos Condit as he gets a new opponent.
Long time Brazilian standout Alex Oliveira (18-4-1) will step in on short notice to face Condit (30-11) after Brown suffered a torn ACL and was forced to withdraw. The booking was first reported by Brazilian outlet Combate.
Oliveira is coming off of his fight of the year contender against Yancy Medeiros in December at UFC 218, which he lost by TKO. Prior to that he had won 5 straight.
Condit will also be looking to rebound. The former interim welterweight champion is riding a 3 fight losing streak, with losses to Robbie Lawler, Demain Maia and most recently a unanimous decision loss to Neil Magney in December at UFC 219.
UFC on FOX 29 takes place in just 10 days, on April 14th at Gila River Arena in Glendale Ariz. The card will air on FOX following prelims on UFC Fight Pass.
