UFC on FX 4 Lineup gets Several Changes due to Injury

Rick StoryThe UFC on FX 4 lineup has changed considerably since first announced, thanks to several fighters suffering injuries during training camps and withdrawing from their respective bouts.

Welterweight Rick Story has received two new opponents since his original adversary, Rich Attonito, pulled out of their fight. Story was then scheduled to meet Papy Abedi at the event, but the Swedish fighter also got injured and withdrew from the bout. Now, Story will attempt to rebound from back-to-back losses against promotional newcomer Brock Jardine.

In other welterweight action, Matt Brown will no longer be facing Matt Riddle on the card. Riddle suffered an injury and has withdrawn from the event, leaving the door open for Luis Ramos – whose single UFC appearance to date resulted in a quick TKO loss to Erick Silva – to step up and fill in.

Also, Jim Hettes bowed out of his featherweight tilt with Steven Siler and has been replaced by another octagon debutant in Joey Gambino.

UFC on FX 4 will take place on June 22 at the Revel Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey and will be headlined by lightweights Gray Maynard and Clay Guida.
