Rich Attonito Steps in to Face Gunnar Nelson at UFC on Fuel 5

September 17, 2012

A late change has been made to the upcoming UFC on Fuel TV 5 card with Rich Attonito stepping in to face grappling wiz Gunnar Nelson in Nottingham, England.

Nelson’s original opponent Pascal Krauss was forced out of the bout with an undisclosed injury.

UFC officials confirmed the switch on Monday.

Attonito steps in on less than two weeks notice until fight time looking to stop Nelson’s undefeated run.

The American Top Team fighter has bounced back and forth between wins and losses over his last four fights, but following a defeat in his last trip to the Octagon, he will look to avoid back-to-back losses for the first time in his career.
