Ivan Menjivar vs. Mike Easton Going Down at UFC 148

| by

UFC officials have wasted little time in announcing Ivan Menjivar's new opponent for UFC 148: Silva vs. Sonnen II, as Mike Easton will step in. Menjivar was originally scheduled to face Renan Barao, but Barao was promoted to a bout with Urijah Faber for the interim UFC bantamweight title.

Menjivar (24-8) is 3-1 since joining the UFC, and was right up there with Barao and Michael McDonald as possible opponents for Faber with Dominick Cruz going down due to a knee injury.
