As I reported on Twitter, heavyweight Chase Sherman has stepped on short note to confront Dmitry Poberezhets in UFC 211 next month in Dallas. Sherman (9-3) replaces the wounded Jarjis Danho in this struggle and will be hunting for his first UFC victory. The 27-year-old has gone 0-2 in the UFC, losing back-to-back fights against Justin Ledet and many recently Walt Harris in UFC Fight Night 103 at January.
Meanwhile, Poberezhets (24-5-1) makes his promotional and North American debut on the heels of a 15-fight unbeaten streak. The Ukrainian fighter hasn’t lost a fight since 2012.

UFC releases Michael Graves following 2016 domestic violence arrest
UFC officials announced Monday the welterweight Michael Graves (6-0-1) has been published from the promotion after being detained in October 2016 for domestic violence. Here’s an official announcement from the UFC:
Back in November 2016, welterweight Michael Graves was eliminated from his UFC bout after his arrest in Fulton County, Florida. As a possible breach of this UFC Fighter Conduct Policy, the UFC company temporarily barred Graves from contest pending the conclusion of a third-party investigation. Based on the findings of this thorough inspection and investigation, UFC has advised Graves that he has been released from his contract effective immediately. UFC requires all athletes to act in an ethical and accountable manner, as mandated by the UFC Fighter Conduct Policy. UFC retains its athletes to the maximum standard and will continue to take appropriate action when and if justified.
