Matt Hamill has a new opponent for his first post-retirement fight.

His original UFC 151 opponent and UFC newcomer, Roger Hollett (13-3 MMA, 0-0 UFC), has suffered an injury, and veteran Vladimir Matyushenko (26-6 MMA, 7-4 UFC) has stepped in to fight Hamill (10-4 MMA, 9-4 UFC) on short notice.

UFC officials today announced the change to the light-heavyweight fight.

This isn't going to be an easy fight for shenko. I'm kind of torn on who to root for


Hamill im feeling takes this UD.

Ring rust is more severe on Hammil, Maty SD or UD.

last time Vladdy fought in Toronto, it was a very quick KO win. I like him in this fight

Hamill by UD or TKO

Good to see both guys back. It's a close fight imo. I think Vladdy might still have what it takes to get the W.
