With Nikolas Motta out, Ignacio Bahamondes now will face Trey Ogden at UFC 287

Ignacio Bahamondes will remain on UFC 287.

Nikolas Motta has been forced out of the April 8 fight due to an injury and Trey Ogden (16-5 MMA, 1-1 UFC) will step in on short notice to face Bahamondes (13-4 MMA, 2-1 UFC) in Miami.

Two people with knowledge of the booking told MMA Junkie of the new matchup Tuesday. They asked to remain anonymous since the promotion has yet to make an official announcement.

Since he lost his UFC debut to John Makdessi in April 2021, Dana White’s Contender Series graduate Bahamondes has won two straight: a spinning wheel kick knockout of Roosevelt Roberts, followed by his first career submission over Rong Zhu in February 2022.

Ogden has split his first two octagon appearances. After he was edged out by Jordan Leavitt in his UFC debut, Ogden rebounded with a unanimous decision win over Daniel Zellhuber this past September.

With the change, the UFC 287 lineup now includes:

  • Champion Alex Pereira vs. Israel Adesanya – for middleweight title

  • Gilbert Burns vs. Jorge Masvidal

  • Rob Font vs. Adrian Yanez

  • Christian Rodriguez vs. Raul Rosas Jr.

  • Kevin Holland vs. Santiago Ponzinibbio

  • Chris Curtis vs. Kelvin Gastelum

  • Michael Chiesa vs. TBA

  • Gerald Meerschaert vs. Joseph Pyfer

  • Cynthia Calvillo vs. Lupita Godinez

  • Luana Pinheiro vs. Michelle Waterson-Gomez

  • Steve Garcia vs. Shayilan Nuerdanbieke

  • Chris Barnett vs. Chase Sherman

  • Ignacio Bahamondes vs. Trey Ogden

  • Jaqueline Amorim vs. Sam Hughes
