As reported earlier, Ben Rothwell has suffered an ankle injury in preparation for his bout with Travis Browne. While a replacement for Rothwell was sought, the UFC decided to instead pull Travis Browne from the card all-together. The UFC decided to fill the void on the main card with a welterweight fight between Demarques Johnson and Mike Swick. UFC officials announced the news Wednesday evening.
Swick will be making his first appearance in over two and a half years when he faces Johnson. The AKA product has dealt with both illness and injury in that time period but is now ready to make his return to the Octagon.
UFC on Fox 4 takes place August 11 from the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. The four-fight main card will be anchored by a light heavyweight fight between Mauricio “Shogun” Rua and Brandon Vera. The main card will obviously air on Fox with the preliminary card airing on Fuel TV.
