Mike Pierce will replace an injured Kyle Noke and face Seth Baczynski in December at UFC on FX: Sotiropoulos vs. Pearson. The card goes down December 15 from Australia.
Noke, a native of Australia, was injured in training and forced out of the planned welterweight contest. Pierce (15-5) has won seven of his 10 UFC bouts, including a recent victory over Aaron Simpson.
Baczynski (17-6) is 4-1 with the UFC, including wins in each of his last six fights. The exact order of fights for the card has yet to be determined.
