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.
