Howard vs. Brown, Attonito vs. Roberts Set for UFC on Versus 4 with Kampmann Out

John HowardThe UFC on Versus fight card has been shuffled following an injury to Martin Kampmann, who was scheduled to face fellow welterweight John Howard at the June 26 event in Pittsburgh, the UFC announced Tuesday.

Howard will now take on The Ultimate Fighter 7’s Matt Brown on the Versus-televised main card, while Brown’s original opponent Rich Attonio, meets replacement Daniel Roberts on the night’s preliminary card.

Howard (14-6) won his first four UFC bouts before back-to-back losses to Jake Ellenberger and Thiago Alves, while Brown (11-10) desperately needs a win to keep his UFC career alive following losses to Ricardo Almeida, Chris Lytle, and Brian Foster.

Meanwhile, Attonito (9-4) scored UFC wins over fellow TUF 11 castmember Jamie Yager and Rafael Natal before falling to Dave Branch in December, while Roberts (12-2), a teammate of Strikeforce lightweight champ Gilbert Melendez, had his three-fight win streak snapped by Claude Patrick in April.

The UFC on Versus 4 fight card is headlined by Nate Matquardt’s welterweight debut against rising prospect Rick Story, who recently replaced an injured Anthony Johnson.
