Shane Roller-Jacob Volkmann, Michael Johnson-Danny Castillo Get New Fight Dates

A pair of scheduled UFC 151 lightweight bouts have been shifted to UFC On FX: Browne vs. Bigfoot. Shane Roller vs. Jacob Volkmann, and Michael Johnson vs. Danny Castillo, will now take place on the October card.

Both fights were set for the prelims of UFC 151 before the event was cancelled on Thursday. The UFC has been working all day to find new homes for the scheduled fights.

Roller (11-6) has gone just 1-3 in his last four fights, but did defeat John Alessio earlier this year. Volkmann (14-3) had his five-fight win streak snapped by Paul Sass this past May.

Johnson (11-6) is on a two-fight win streak and sports a record of 3-2 since joining the UFC in 2010. He was a finalist on The Ultimate Fighter. Castillo (14-4) has earned three consecutive victories and is 6-1 in his last seven appearances.
