Colombo, who suffered an undisclosed injury that lead to the cancellation of his bout against Damian Grabowski in May, is back and ready to take on undefeated newcomer Carlos Felipe. "Godzilla" is 8-2-1 overall and has yet to claim a win in his UFC career since debuting in September 2016.

Colombo and Damian Grabowski will no longer face off at UFC Fight Night 109 on May 28 in Stockholm.

Fantasy Analysis

Colombo was originally set to meet Damian Grabowski in the Octagon for the opening fight of UFC Stockholm. However, due to injuries sustained by both heavyweight fighters, their bout has been cancelled. As of Tuesday, there is no word of a replacement for the bout.
Colombo lost to Luis Henrique via submission (guillotine choke) at 2:12 of Round 3 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Fantasy Analysis

Colombo lasted more than 12 minutes, but it was an ugly effort throughout. Unable to defend himself on the feet, and completely unable to defend the takedown, Colombo was a beaten, bloody mess by the time he finally tapped out in Round 3. Colombo doesn't move well, and at age-36, there's no reason to believe any improvement is forthcoming. He is now 0-1-1 in his first two UFC fights. A release isn't entirely out of the question here.
