A week after a main event change that saw Rick Story step in for the injured Anthony Johnson to fight Nate Marquardt at UFC Live, the event gets another shuffle.
Danish Welterweight Martin Kampmann (17-5) has been forced out of his main card bout with John Howard due to an injury. Howard (14-6) will remain on the main card and face Matt Brown (11-10) who was originally schedule on the undercard against Rich Attonito.
Attonito (9-4) will also remain on the night’s card as part of the undercard to face the late replacement and Skrap Pack product Daniel Roberts (12-2). News of the changes was announced by the UFC late Monday.
