The injury bug strikes again. Welterweight Martin Kampmann has been forced out of his upcoming “UFC on Versus 4” contest with John Howard due to an undisclosed injury. “Doomsday” will now collide with Matt Brown inside the Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
Brown was originally scheduled to face Rich Attonito on the June 26th event. Now that “The Immortal” has received an unexpected promotion, Attonito will now fight Daniel Roberts on the preliminary card.
UFC president Dana White announced the changes early Tuesday morning.
A spectacular welterweight scrap between Nate Marquardt and Rick Story will serve as the show’s featured attraction. “Nate the Great” was initially slated to headline opposite Anthony Johnson, but “Rumble” was recently sidelined with a shoulder injury.
Versus will broadcast the main bouts live beginning at 9PM ET/6PM PT.
Here is the freebie fight card’s revised roster (Bout order subject to change):
Michael Johnson vs. Edward Faaloloto
Matt Grice vs. Ricardo Lamas
Charles Oliveira vs. Nik Lentz
TJ Grant vs. Charlie Brenneman
Rich Attonito vs. Daniel Roberts
Joe Lauzon vs. Curt Warburton
Joe Stevenson vs. Javier Vazquez
Tyson Griffin vs. Manny Gamburyan
Matt Mitrione vs. Christian Morecraft
John Howard vs. Matt Brown
Pat Barry vs. Cheick Kongo
Nate Marquardt vs. Rick Story
