After a court injunction favored Bellator and prevented Quinton Jackson from competing at UFC 186, the promotion has since found a replacement. As the UFC announced on Friday night, stepping in for Rampage against Fabio Maldonado is Steve Bosse.
No card placement has been announced, but it is probably safe to say that it won’t be holding Rampage’s original co-main event spot on the line up.
Bosse is a former hockey player with a 10-1 MMA record, holding wins over UFC vets such as Wes Sim, Houston Alexander and Marvin Eastman. He signed with the UFC on early 2014, but after pulling out due to injury, he announced a retirement from Mixed Martial Arts before even stepping foot inside the Octagon.

Check out the result from the main event between Mirko Cro Cop and Gabriel Gonzaga at UFC Fight Night in Krakow, Poland.
He has cited injuries and that his body is already ‘talking’ to him, making this relatively short notice return a bit of a surprise to some.
‘The Boss’ is now 33-years-old and hasn’t fought since competing at the Canadian circuit on May 2013.
