Anyanwu steps up for PA assignment against Ledet

The latest alumnus from Dana White's Tuesday Night Contender Series to graduate to the UFC, heavyweight Zu Anyanwu will get a home game in Pennsylvania this Saturday when he steps in to replace the injured Dmitry Sosnovskiy against Justin Ledet in a UFC Fight Night bout at PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh.

In the main event, which airs live on FS1, former middleweight champion Luke Rockhold returns to face David Branch.

Unbeaten as a pro, Texas' Ledet hopes to keep the momentum going from his UFC wins over Chase Sherman and Mark Godbeer when he battles Langhorne's Anyanwu, whose 14-4 record includes eight knockouts and a finish of Greg Rebello in his July bout on DWTNCS.
