Jake Ellenberger Steps In to Face Sean Pierson at UFC 129 on April 30

Jake Ellenberger has agreed to replaced an inured Brian Foster and will now meet fellow welterweight Sean Pierson on the preliminary card of UFC 129 on April 30 in Toronto, the UFC announced Wednesday.

Foster was knocked off the card after a pre-fight MRI revealed a brain hemorrhage.

Ellenberger (24-5) narrowly beat Carlos Eduardo Rocha in February for his third-straight win, while Pierson (11-4) topped Matt Riddle in his UFC debut in December.
