Bielkheden will be facing UFC veteran Luis Ramos who steps in and replaces Daniel Acacio, who was expected to face the Swede for the welterweight title. The experienced Nova Uniao fighter is training partner with Superior Challenge’s middleweight champion Thales Leites.  “It is a very interesting match between two UFC veterans, especially considering that our home fighter also has kickboxing background and a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
