Thanks to a pair of injuries, UFC 166 has a new featherweight fight.

An injury has knocked Estevan Payan (14-4 MMA, 0-1 UFC) from his fight with Charles Oliveira (16-4 MMA, 4-4 UFC). And the recent car accident that has Matt Grice (15-5 MMA, 2-5 UFC) still hospitalized with a head injury meant Jeremy Larsen (8-4 MMA, 0-2 UFC) was without an opponent.

Now Oliveira and Larsen will fight each other on the preliminary card. UFC officials announced the new booking on Tuesday night.

That is even tougher for Larsen ! Poor guy haha !

That is a massive jump down of competition for oliviera though.. Edgar to Larsen... Basically from one end of spectrum all the way to the other

Still really sucks about Grice. The guy has me pretty worried.

Speaking of worried, I would be freaking out if I just found out I would be getting subbed in the first round like Larsen

Unfair fight.

Wonder if UFC adds a 13th fight now or not
