Matt Riddle vs. Matt Brown Set For UFC on Versus 3 Following Injury to Mark Scanlon

“The Ultimate Fighter” alums Matt Riddle and Matt Brown will both be looking to bounce back from recent losses when they face off at UFC on Versus 3 in Louisville, Kentucky on March 3. Riddle is stepping in on somewhat short notice after an undisclosed injury forced Brown’s original opponent Mark Scanlon off the card, according to a report from MMA Scraps Radio via MMAWeekly.

Brown (11-10) fell to Brian Foster in November for his third-straight UFC loss, but The Ultimate Fighter 7 cast member escaped a likely UFC release, while Riddle had a two fight win streak snapped by a decision loss to Sean Pierson at UFC 124 in December.

The UFC on Versus 3 fight card is headlined by Diego Sanchez vs. Martin Kampmann and also includes Alessio Sakara vs. Maiquel Falcao and CB Dollaway vs. Mark Munoz.
