Two Matchups Change In UFC’s February 6th Lineup

Recent developments have caused two fights on UFC’s February 6th card to change. The new fights will be part of a “Fight Night” card that does not have a confirmed location currently.

Andre Ewell Replaces Merab Dvalishvili, To Face Cody Stamann

UFC is looking to book Cody Stamann against a new opponent on the card in Andre Ewell. First reported by Cole Shelton of BJPenn.com, Stamann takes the place of Merab Dvalishvili, who has withdrawn from the fight due to COVID-19.

Ewell joins the card following a successful 2020 where he picked up split decision wins over Jonathan Martinez and Irwin Rivera.

Now with a new opponent, Stamann still has the goal of bouncing back from a decision loss to Jimmie Rivera, which he took in July of 2020.

The previous matchup between Dvalishvili and Stamann was the UFC’s second attempt at pairing the bantamweights. A December matchup with the fighters was cancelled after Stamann tested positive for COVID-19.

Collin Anglin Takes UFC Debut, Steps In To Fight Seung Woo Choi

First reported by SPOTV, Seung Woo Choi will now face Collin Anglin, who will take the place of Steven Peterson. The change in opponent comes after injury forced Peterson out of the fight.

The fight will be Anglin’s UFC debut. He earned his UFC contract in September, where he defeated Muhammadjon Naimov via decision on “Dana White’s Contender Series.”

Choi returns after over a year outside of the cage. His last fight was a decision win against Suman Mokhtarian in December of 2019.
