Canadian welterweight Sean Pierson (13-6 MMA, 3-2 UFC) has been forced out a planned UFC 158 matchup with Rick Story (14-6 MMA, 7-4 UFC), and Quinn Mulhern (18-2 MMA, 0-0 UFC) has been tapped as a replacement.

UFC officials today announced the change.

UFC 158 takes place March 16 at Montreal's Bell Centre. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FX and Facebook. Pierson vs. Story was slated for the evening's FX broadcast, but it's unknown if the new fight will keep that same slot.

Mulhern makes his UFC debut after four appearances under the Strikeforce banner. The Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt debuted in June 2011 with a decision loss to Jason High but then bounced back with victories over Yuri Villefort, David Hulett and Danny Davis.

Is it just me or does Pierson seem to get hurt frequently

Rick had a nice run going for a bit there with wins over Alves and Hendricks. And that awesome sub over Brian Foster. Hopefully he's refocused and this is the beginning of a 2nd run. Huge Story fan. He leaves it all in the cage every time.
