An injury has knocked Sean Soriano out of UFC on Fox 11 less than a week after his bout with Estevan Payan was announced.
Soriano (8-1) will be replaced with Mike Brown (26-9) on April 19th at the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida., as announced by UFC officials on Wednesday.
American Top Team member, Mike Brown will be trying to land another win in his training home state after devastating 50-second knockout loss to Steven Siler in August at UFC Fight Night 26.
Prior to his back-to-back losses to Jeremy Stephens and Robbie Peralta, Estevan Payan was on a 7-fight winning streak that started in Strikeforce and carried over to the UFC through the company merger.
The updated fight card for UFC on Fox 11 in Orlando, Florida now looks like this:
• Travis Browne vs. Fabricio Werdum
• Liz Carmouche vs. Miesha Tate
• Edson Barboza vs. Donald Cerrone
• Rafael dos Anjos vs. Khabib Nurmagomedov
