After dropping off the recent UFC 141 fight card on the day of the event due to an illness, Matt Riddle is quickly returning to action.

UFC officials today announced Riddle (5-3 MMA, 5-3 UFC) has replaced injured Amir Sadollah (5-3 MMA, 5-3 UFC) and now meets Wanderlei Silva protege Jorge Lopez (11-2 MMA, 0-1 UFC) at next month's UFC 143 event.

UFC officials today announced the change.

UFC 143 takes place Feb. 4 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas. The event's main card airs live on pay-per-view. Preliminary-card bouts, including Riddle vs. Lopez, are expected to air on FUEL TV.

Weird they didn't match up Ramos/Riddle again since he is going to fight here at 143.

It's decent, and each event doesn't have to be loaded with big names to have exciting fights. Just head over to your local sports bar if you don't want to dish out the $60.

This is a better fight then the first. While Sadollah is tight & technical , Riddle is a risky slugger which leaves more room for a barnburner with Lopez Could be fight of the night

There are four ranked fighters on the card other than Condit and Diaz. I'm excited for Nelson/Werdum and Jorgensen/Barao personally.

You're excited for Jorgensen Barao to fight each other? Did Jorgensen insult your mom or something?

Barao is one scary little dude, but he's got his hands full with Jorgensen should be a classic!!!

Don't underestimate Jorgensen. Let's not forget that Barao's most high profile performance came against Brad Pickett, who Jorgensen also beat.
