Icelandic welterweight prospect Gunnar Nelson is out of his UFC 160 fight against Mike Pyle. Replacing him is recent UFC 158 winner Rick Story.

I think the fight got a lot harder for Pyle. I always like seeing Story fight

Great replacement and I'm kind of glad Gunnar is out. Gunnar could be the next champ at 170 but I think he should take it slow. Pyle would have been a tough fight.

YES!

I love when replacement fights are as good or better than the original.
