Jason Witt Steps In On Hours Notice To Face Takashi Sato on Saturday’s UFC Card

Ramiz Brahimaj has been taken off of Saturday’s UFC card, with Jason Witt replacing him against Takashi Sato. Announced by the UFC, Brahimaj was taken off the card as a precaution after a cornerman tested positive for COVID-19.

Due to his last-minute replacement, Witt will not be a part of the scheduled weigh-ins on Friday, weighing in separately.

The fight will be the UFC debut for Witt, who comes in with a 17-5 record. Currently on a four-fight winning streak, Witt last fought in February. He has competed in notable promotions before like Bellator, LFA and Titan FC.

Now with a new opponent, Sato still has the same goal in mind, that being to bounce back from his first loss in the UFC. He enters this fight with a 1-1 UFC record.
