Bedford (18-9-1) made his UFC debut at The Ultimate Fighter 14 Finale last December, defeating TUF 14 castmate Louis Gaudinot via TKO. He hasn't appeared since due to opponent visa issues and, now, injury.
Bedford will be replaced by another TUF 14 alum in Roland Delorme (7-1), who also picked up his most recent win at the TUF 14 Finale. The 28-year-old Canadian submitted Josh Ferguson with a rear naked choke at the event.
Nick Denis (11-2) made his UFC debut this past January at UFC on FX: Guillard vs. Miller, knocking out Joseph Sandoval in twenty-two seconds to take home the Knockout of the Night bonus.
The bout will take place in the bantamweight division. UFC on FOX 3: Diaz vs. Miller is scheduled for May 5 at the IZOD Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
