DaMarques Johnson has stepped in for an injured Jame Wilks and now meets The Ultimate Fighter 7 winner Amir Sadollah in a welterweight bout on the Spike-televised main card at UFC Fight Night 24 on March 26 in Seattle, the UFC announced Sunday.
Wilks replaced an injured Dennis Hallman just over one week ago, but a knee injury forced him from the matchup.
Both Johnson (12-8) and Sadollah (4-2) have won three of their last four fights, with Johnson, the runner-up to Wilks on The Ultimate Fighter 9, stopping Mike Guymon at January’s UFC Fight for the Troops 2 and Sadollah topping Peter Sobotta at November’s UFC 122.
UFC Fight Night 24 is headlined by light heavyweights Phil Davis vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira.
