The game of musical chairs going on with Wilson Reis’ spot at UFC 201 continued today – hopefully, for his sake, for the last round. Reis (20-6 MMA, 4-2 UFC) was supposed to challenge flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson (24-2-1 MMA, 12-1-1 UFC) for the title later this month at UFC 201 until the champ was knocked out with an injury. But Reis stayed on the card against promotional newcomer Sean Santella (15-5-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC). Instead, though, Santella was forced out of the fight because he wasn’t able to clear pre-fight medical tests in time. Now Reis will meet yet another newbie: Hector Sandoval (12-2 MMA, 0-0 UFC). The UFC today announced the new booking
