Bart Palaszewski will replace Anthony Pettis and take on Anthony Njokuani at WEC 40 on April 5th in Chicago.

Pettis was forced out of the bout with a broken hand, according to MMA Junkie.

Palaszewski (30-10) became an IFL standout with wins in eight of his first nine bouts in the promotion, but  next suffered three-straight losses to Deividas Taurosevicius, Chris Horodecki, and Jim Miller. After defeating Jeff Cox at Adrenaline MMA’s debut event, “Bartimus” signed with the WEC and successfully debuted with a win over Alex Karalexis, but most-recently suffered a unanimous decision loss to Ricardo Lamas at WEC 39.

After losing just once in his first ten career bouts, Njokuani (9-2) debuted in the WEC at WEC 38, losing to Ben Henderson via second-round submission.
