This is not official yet and nothing has been signed, but Ivan Salaverry will be taking Marvin Eastman's place against Patrick Cote at UFC 50 in Atlantic City. Salaverry has not competed in UFC since UFC 39 in September 2002 when he lost a unanimous decision to Matt Lindland. He had three fights with K-1 (two under MMA rules) since that point. Eastman, who was originally scheduled to face the debuting Patrick Cote (TKO fighter) at 205 pounds at UFC 50 in Atlantic City, is out of the show because of the situation that arose from his K-1 bout in Las Vegas a few weeks ago against Ray Sefo.

Lineup for UFC 50:
Tito Ortiz vs. Guy Mezger
Matt Hughes vs. Georges St-Pierre
Renato Verissimo vs. Frank Trigg
Patrick Cote vs. Ivan Salaverry
Evan Tanner vs. Robbie Lawler
Rich Franklin vs. Jorge Rivera
Phil Baroni vs. Trevor Prangley
Tra Telligman vs. Paul Buentello
