A knee injury to Luke Rockhold has forced a change to the UFC 166 lineup. Stepping into his place opposite Tim Boetch at the October 19 card will be CB Dollaway. The move was announced at Wednesday’s edition of UFC Tonight.

The Ultimate Fighter Season 7 runner-up has won two straight heading into the October card, with his last victory coming against Daniel Sarafian at UFC on FX 7. The two-fight streak helped Dollaway break a two-fight losing streak.

UFC 166 is headlined by the third fight between UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez and Junior dos Santos. A bout between Daniel Cormier and Roy Nelson will co-headline the billing. The fight card will take place October 19 at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.
