An injury has forced a change to the preliminary card of next week's UFC Fight Night 30 card in England.

England's Mike Wilkinson (8-1 MMA, 1-1 UFC) is out of his featherweight fight against Jimy Hettes (10-1 MMA, 2-1 UFC), a source close to the bout on Friday confirmed to MMAjunkie.com. According to the source, the UFC is actively seeking a replacement for Wilkinson to take the fight with Hettes on only about one week's notice. But with the card taking place next Saturday, and in the United Kingdom, time and a replacement fighter's home base may be factors.

That's a really rough fight to take on short notice. Hettes is layers and layers of grappling skill.

I feels like forever since Hettes has fought!
I just want to see him fight again! That kid has all kinds of potential and it's a shame he keeps missing fights, because he gets nothing but benefits from getting experienced so young.
