After his injury, the UFC announced Thursday that Cezar Ferreira is out of his bout against Tom Breese at The O2 Arena on March 16.
Heinisch is Breese’s second opponent switch for the UFC London card, originally being scheduled to fight Alessio Di Chirico, who also had to be pulled due to injury. The middleweight prospect will now take on Breese and looks to continue his win streak after his UFC debut this past November, coming out with a unanimous decision win over Ferreira in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
This will be Breese’s second UFC fight at 185-pounds. The former welterweight defeated Dan Kelly by first-round TKO in his most recent outing last May.
UFC London will be headlined by Darren Till, as he takes on Jorge Masvidal on ESPN+.
