With Ian McCall forced to withdraw from their UFC on FOX 9 scrap with a hand injury, Scott Jorgensen has been issued a new assignment for December 14. Jorgensen now meets former flyweight top contender John Dodson inside Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento, California.
UFC officials confirmed the tango Tuesday afternoon.
Dodson is just 10 days removed from his KO victory over Darrell Montague at UFC 166. He was petitioning for a quick turnaround after suffering through a 10-month hiatus before the bout, despite being healthy the entire time.
Dodson is victorious in six of his past seven outings.
Jorgensen, meanwhile, has fought under the Zuffa banner since 2008. He went 7-3 in the WEC before the promotion closed its blue-caged doors. However, “Young Guns” has won just half of his six bouts in the big leagues.
The 125-pound affair will likely appear in the night’s prelims.
FOX broadcasts the main card live starting at 8PM ET/5PM PT.
Here is the show’s revised agenda:
Darren Uyenoyama vs. John Moraga
Cody McKenzie vs. Sam Stout
Jamie Varner vs. Pat Healy
Roger Bowling vs. Abel Trujillo
Mac Danzig vs. Joe Lauzon
Danny Castillo vs. Edson Barboza
Kelvin Gastelum vs. Court McGee
John Dodson vs. Scott Jorgensen
Chad Mendes vs. Nik Lentz
Carlos Condit vs. Matt Brown
Urijah Faber vs. Michael McDonald
Josh Thomson vs. Anthony Pettis (UFC lightweight champion)
