MMAWeekly is reporting that UFC veteran Elvis Sinosic will be filling in for Evangelista “Cyborg” Santos at Cage Rage 24 when he faces British fighter Paul Cahoon.
According to the report, Evangelista Santos was pulled from the card due to weight cutting issues. Cage Rage now expects the Santos-Cahoon fight to happen at some point in March.
