An undisclosed injury has forced Mike Stumpf (11-3 MMA, 0-1 UFC) out of UFC 143.

In his place goes undefeated welterweight prospect Stephen "Wonderboy" Thompson (5-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC), who fights Justin Edwards (7-2 MMA, 1-1 UFC) at the Super Bowl weekend event, UFC officials today announced.

UFC 143 takes place Feb. 4 at Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas.

Thompson vs. Edwards is part of the event's preliminary card, which airs live on FX. Main-card action airs on pay-per-view.

First thought in my head when I saw the headline was a Yves Edwards - Josh Thomson rematch. Logic kicked in soon after though.
