The night's three headlining fights remain in place, but UFC on FOX 2's undercard continues to undergo changes.

UFC officials today announced that Nik Lentz (21-4-2 MMA, 5-1-1 UFC) replaces an injured Paul Sass (12-0 MMA, 2-0 UFC) and faces Evan Dunham (12-2 MMA, 5-2 UFC), while Eddie Wineland (18-8-1 MMA, 0-2 UFC) has suffered an injury in training and has been forced to withdraw from the card.

Wineland's opponent, Johnny Bedford (18-9-1 MMA, 1-0 UFC) – who was actually a replacement for Demetrious Johnson – now awaits a new foe.

UFC on FOX 2 takes place Jan. 28 at Chicago's United Center. The night's main card, which features three bouts, airs on FOX. Prelims air on FUEL TV.

Gotta give Lentz credit for stepping up. He will get handled though.

Sad and glad. I liked the Sass vs Dunham matchup, but now don't have to see one of them lose. And can maybe see Lentz lose again.

Also sad to see Wineland get injuried.

Ya Dunham should take this one, and would like to see them put Michael McDonald against Bedford, if he's not sceduled to fight right now, its tough to keep with all of these fights lol

As long as Dunham remains on the card, I love! watching him fight. Shame though him & Sass would of put on a show.

This sums up what I was going to say.

Paul Sass is not ready for Evan Dunham, Just as well he's been replaced. When i saw that match up i thought Sass was in trouble !!

I agree, Dunham should be the favorite and I'll likely pick him, BUT you can't count out the Carney. 5-1-1 is a pretty good record in the UFC. It wouldnt be the first time Lentz has won as the underdog.

Mad props to Nik for stepping up.

Move Bruce Leroy up to face Bedford.
