UFC Uriah Hall

(UPDATED 6/12/15 at 10:42AM PT)

The UFC has just announced Hall won’t be able to travel to Germany due to visa issues. Jotko will be shelved for a later event.

A rib injury has forced Derek Brunson out of his June 20 bout against Krzysztof Jotko. Former “The Ultimate Fighter 17” runner-up Uriah Hall (pictured) has agreed to serve as a last-second substitute.

Hall is looking to rebound from May’s split decision defeat to Rafael Natal. “Primetime” had won three straight prior to meeting the Brazilian.

Jotko owns a 15-1 professional record and has gone 2-1 under the UFC’s watch. He most recently outpointed Tor Troeng in October for a decision win.

No word on how long Brunson will be forced to sit the sidelines.

O2 World in Berlin, Germany hosts the festivities. Fox Sports 1 will likely air the main card live in America.

Here is the show’s updated lineup:

Alan Patrick vs. Mairbek Taisumov

Niklas Backstrom vs. Noad Lahat

Tatsuya Kawajiri vs. Dennis Siver

Nick Hein vs. Lukasz Sajewski

Scott Askham vs. Antonio dos Santos Jr.

Alan Omer vs. Mike Wilkinson

Piotr Hallmann vs. Magomed Mustafaev

Nikita Krylov vs. Marcos Rogerio de Lima

Makwan Amirkhani vs. Masio Fullen

Uriah Hall vs. Krzysztof Jotko

Jessica Penne vs. Joanna Jedrzejczyk (UFC strawweight champion)
