The injuries continue for UFC 149: Faber vs. Barao, as Siyar Bahadurzada has been forced out of a planned bout with Chris Clements. In his place will be Matt Riddle.
Riddle (6-3) has spent his entire professional MMA career fighting inside the Octagon. He defeated Henry Martinez in his most recent fight, snapping a two-fight losing skid.
Clements (11-4) has won his last five fights. He was signed as an injury replacement himself, taking the place of Thiago Alves.
