UPDATE: Fight day odds and betting splits for Sato-Witt

A last-second replacement fighter will head to the undercard at UFC on ESPN 12 on Saturday night in Las Vegas when Jason Witt comes in to face Takashi Sato in the octagon.

Ramiz Brahimaj was originally scheduled for this fight, but had to withdraw due to a positive Covid-19 test from his cornerman. Witt was named a last-minute replacement, and won’t be participating in the normal weigh-in/faceoff process today. He’ll need to pass a Covid-19 test as well.

Sato is 15-3 in MMA, and 1-1 in the UFC after falling to Belal Muhammad via rear-naked choke in September of last year. During his two bouts in the promotion, he’s averaged 3.13 strikes per minute. The southpaw from Tokyo is 30 years old, and has ten KO’s and two submissions on his resume, and previously fought mostly in Pancrease in Japan.

Witt’s nickname is “The Vanilla Gorilla” and has a 15-5 career record. He’s won seven of his last eight in promotions such as the Legacy Fighting Alliance, Final Fight Championship, and Zak Cummings Promotions - Stronger Men’s Conference 2018 (we didn’t make that up, promise). He’s got 10 stoppage wins across his 15 victories, seven of them by submission. The 33-year-old from Kansas City made his pro debut in May of 2013.
