Sean Spencer replaces Zak Cummings

Sergio Moraes has a new opponent for next month’s
Ultimate Fighter 18 Finale.

UFC officials announced on Wednesday that Sean “Black
Magic” Spencer has replaced an injured Zak Cummings on the
Team Rousey vs. Team Tate finale scheduled for November 30 at the
Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas. Details on Cummings’
injury were not disclosed.

After racking up nine wins in his first 10 professional fights,
Spencer debuted in the UFC on short notice in the middleweight
division, losing to Rafael Natal in January. In September, Spencer
returned to the welterweight division and picked up his first
victory inside the Octagon, earning a split decision win over Yuri
Villefort in Belo Horizonte, Brazil.

Moraes, a veteran of Season 1 of The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil,
is looking to extend his winning streak to three and hoping to
duplicate the Submission of the Night performance he turned in
against Neil Magny back in August. The charismatic and popular
31-year-old carries an 8-2 record into the cage, with seven of his
career victories coming by way of submission.

The Ultimate Fighter 18: Team Rousey vs. Team Tate Finale takes
place Saturday, November 30 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in
Las Vegas and airs of Fox Sports 1.

Here’s a look at the current fight card, which will also
include the men’s and women’s tournament finals and
potentially more bouts featuring athletes from the current
season:

Demetrious Johnson vs. Joseph Benavidez

Nate Diaz vs. Gray Maynard

Walter Harris vs. Jared Rosholt

Maximo Blanco vs. Akira Corassani

Tom Niinimaki vs. Rani Yahya

Sergio Moraes vs. Sean Spencer
