There is a slight change in one of the lightweight bouts of the UFC Vegas 76 event.
According to the latest reports, Jordan Leavitt is out of the scheduled bout against Elves Brener, and now he would be replaced by Guram Kutaeladze at the UFC Fight Night event on July 1, 2023.
MMA Time was the first one to report this change which was confirmed by multiple other sources as well.
The reason for Leavitt’s withdrawal is yet to be revealed. But, now it is confirmed that UFC Vegas 76 will feature Kutaeladze vs Brener instead of Leavitt vs Brener.
Guram Kutaeladze will be stepping inside the octagon one year after losing a match against Damir Ismagulov. He made his UFC debut in 2020 and defeated Mateusz Gamrot in his inaugural match.
On the other hand, Elves Brener only had one UFC match in which he defeated Zubaira Tukhugov via split decision.
Now both these fighters are looking for their second UFC win, and it will be interesting to see which one of them will get it first when they collide at UFC Vegas 76.
