British bantamweight Brad Pickett has suffered an injury and has been forced to withdraw from his UFC 130 bout with Miguel Torres. Stepping in to face the former WEC champion in Pickett's stead will be Demetrious Johnson, the promotion announced Wednesday evening.

"The fastest man in the division has answered the call, and Demetrious Johnson will move into Pickett’s spot to face the former divisional kingpin," said UFC president Dana White. "Both men have verbally agreed to the fight."

Oh snap, it is going down! I don't know what is more stacked, UFC 129 or UFC 130.

This is gonna be a huge fight, and a tough one to call.

Sh*t just got real! Props to MM for stepping in. Torres should have some crazy reach advantage. But, I wonder if he can defend MM's wrestling?

Man, how do you just step in and face Torres. Tough task. I think I've got to stick with Torres, unless I'm sure Mighty Mouse can get Torres down.

I think Mighty Mouse really steps up here and takes it to Torres. Great fight though and I'm happy either way.

Agreed. Hopefully he can get himself a number 1 contender's fight with a win here or even a title shot. It's not like there are a bunch of possibilities after Faber vs Cruz. Faber vs Mighty Mouse would be a really interesting fight whether it be a title fight or a regular fight.

What a bummer... I'm a huge Pickett fan and was counting on him to bring it.

I'm sure Mighty Mouse can get Torres on his back, but my concern is whether or not he's gonna want to let Torres work off his back. I think that Torres has an advantage everywhere in this fight other than the takedowns, and I think that will pay dividends for him.

Sounds like the same advantages he had against Benavidez...I love Torres but hes in trouble against any wrestler...Thing is with his reach he should be better at defending and actually getting the better positions on takedowns...I don't know where hes training wrestling but he should train with Jon Jones to learn some moves to take advantage of reach...

Torres by sub or UD. Torres is better at pretty much every aspect, minus wrestling, and will have like a foot reach advantage (might be slightly exaggerating). he can catch MM shooting for a TD or use that jab effectively like his last fight. Torres may win a couple scrambles where he ends up on top...and thats the last spot MM wants to be

Mighty Mouse will win, dude is a dark horse at 135 and a future champ at 125. I dont see a UFC title in Torres' future even if he does win. I dont know how he's going to handle Johnsons wrestling or quickness. I was honestly picking Pickett to upset Torres already but in a different fashion.

Mighty Mouse by late submission or decision.
