Tai
Tuivasa
will remain on the
UFC on ESPN 21
card against a new adversary, as Harry
Hunsucker
will step in for Don’Tale
Mayes
on Saturday.


MMAjunkie.com
first reported the new pairing, and it was later
confirmed on broadcast partner ESPN’s event listing. UFC on ESPN 21
takes place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas and is headlined by a
middleweight tilt between Kevin
Holland
and Derek
Brunson
. The main card, including Tuivasa vs. Hunsucker, airs
on ESPN and ESPN+ at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT.

Hunsucker came up short in his bid to earn a UFC contract on Dana
White’s Contender Series this past November, when he suffered a
first-round TKO defeat to Jared
Vanderaa
. The Elite Martial Arts & Fitness member owns a 6-3
professional mark, with all of his victories coming inside the
distance.

Tuivasa halted a three-bout Octagon skid with a first-round KO of
Stefan
Struve
in his most recent outing at UFC 254 this past
October.
