An injury has knocked Erik Perez (13-4 MMA, 3-0 UFC) out of Saturday's bantamweight bout against Johnny Bedford (19-9-1 MMA, 2-0 UFC) at UFC 159, and Bryan Caraway (17-6 MMA, 2-1 UFC) will step in to take his place on short notice.

Bedford on Monday revealed the new matchup on his Twitter account, though the UFC has yet to make a formal announcement of the switch. The two fighters were teammates, though in separate weight classes, on Season 14 of "The Ultimate Fighter.

Damn, that was going to be a great fight. It just got a little more boring if Mr. Tate is able to carry out his game plan.

Makes it a lot tougher to call now, I still like Bedford though.

Massive props to Caraway for stepping up on less than a weeks notice.
Definitely tougher to call, might actually go with Caraway here seeing team Alpha Males success lately.

its getting a little silly but at least it hasn't been any main events yet.
I'm glad they got a replacement fighter on such short notice. I wonder if they have always have fighters on stand by in case of injuries now?

ugh I was really looking forward to seeing Perez fight again. This bout is a lot tougher to pick

Too bad, Perez and Bedford was gonna be a war.

I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.

Props to Caraway for jumping in there, last thing the event needed was a scratched fight
