Neither John Maguire or Matt Riddle were originally scheduled to be part of the UFC 154: St-Pierre vs. Condit lineup next month. Now, the two will square off against one another.
Maguire has agreed to step in and face Riddle after an injury knocked Besam Yousef out of the planned bout. Riddle replaced Stephen Thompson, who was also injured in training.
Maguire (18-4) and Riddle (6-3) will be part of the prelims on November 17 from Montreal's Bell Centre. The main event features UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre meeting interim UFC welterweight champion Carlos Condit.
