A training injury has knocked Justin Salas (10-4 MMA, 1-1 UFC) out of a preliminary-card fight against Edson Barboza (10-1 MMA, 4-1 UFC) at "UFC on FX 7: Belfort vs. Bisping" later this month.

Stepping in for Salas is UFC newcomer Lucas Martins (11-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC). Sources close to the promotion on Wednesday confirmed the news to MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). UFC officials later announced the change.

Martins just this past month won a pair of fights in Sao Paulo in less than a week's time. He submitted Thiago Sampaio with a first-round rear-naked choke in 43 seconds on Dec. 8, then turned around and stopped Oberdan Vieira Tenorio with a head-kick knockout on Dec. 13 under the Jungle Fight banner.

Salas dodged a bullet. Can't believe the replacement fighter fought 9 times last year!!!
This will probably be a better fight

I agree Salas was going to get destroyed by Edson. I dont know to much about Lucas Martins looks like I'll have some research to do for this fight.

I don't see why Ufc couldn't give him a better fighter
Or at least Myles jury or crushiank to fill in
