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.
Former light heavyweight champ Rashad Evans and Dan Henderson meet in the night’s featured fight.
UFC 161 takes place June 15 inside MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Canada.
