Nik Lentz has replaced an injured Paul Sass and will face Evan Dunham in a lightweight bout at UFC on Fox 2, while bantamweight Eddie Wineland has also been sidelined from his matchup with Johnny Bedford at the Jan. 28 event in Chicago, the UFC announced Monday night.
Wineland’s replacement has not yet been determined.
Lentz (21-4-2) dropped a unanimous decision to Mark Bocek at UFC 140 earlier this month for his first UFC loss in eight fights, while Dunham (12-2) rebounded from losses Sean Sherk and Melvin Guillard with a win over Shamar Bailey in September.
UFC on Fox 2 is headlined by Rashad Evans vs. Phil Davis and also features Chael Sonnen vs. Mark Munoz and Michael Bisping vs. Demian Maia on its Fox-televised main card.
