Santos, 34, replaced the injured Glover Teixeira and was expected to fight Jimi Manuwa in tonight’s headliner. But then “Poster Boy” got injured as well, paving the way for Anders, 31, to step in and take his place. Both “Marreta” (18-6) and “Ya Boy” (11-1) are coming off wins in their last appearances back in August.
