Carlton Minus will still have the chance to compete Saturday.
Two people with knowledge of the situation informed MMA Junkie of the new booking Thursday, but asked to remain anonymous since the promotion has yet to make an announcement. The booking was first reported by BJPenn.com.
UFC Fight Night 183 takes place Saturday at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. The card streams on ESPN+.
Minus, a PFL and Alaska FC veteran, fell short in his promotional debut when he lost a unanimous decision to Matthew Semelsberger at UFC on ESPN 15.
Since rejoining the UFC roster in 2018, Giagos (17-8 MMA, 3-4 UFC) has gone 2-2, picking up decision wins over Mizuto Hirota and Damir Hadzovic. He hasn’t competed since a unanimous decision loss to Drakkar Klose in August 2019.
With the change, the UFC Fight Night 183 lineup now includes:
MAIN CARD (ESPN+, 7 p.m. ET)
- Stephen Thompson vs. Geoff Neal
- Jose Aldo vs. Marlon Vera
