A back injury has forced Isaac Vallie-Flagg out of his UFC 161 scrap against Sam Stout. Have no fear, lightweight James Krause is here to serve as a last-minute substitute.

The UFC reported the switcheroo Wednesday afternoon.

Stout vs. Vallie-Flagg was originally scheduled to co-headline the FX portion of the festivities. It is believed the new contest will maintain that same slot in the lineup.
