At UFC 145 Marc Bocek was originally scheduled to face Matt Wiman. As it turns out, that bout has been altered following the announcement that Wiman has suffered injury.

In his place comes returning UFC lightweight, John Alessio.

Alessio will work on getting his first ever UFC win against Bocek. After three prior stints with the promotion he has had huge success on the regional circuit going 10-1 since his last time in the Octagon.
