The UFC is searching for a replacement fight to meet Leonard Garcia at UFC 155: Dos Santos vs. Velasquez II later this month. Cody McKenzie, the scheduled opponent for Garcia, was forced out with an injury.
MMAjunkie.com first reported the exit by McKenzie, and confirmed that the UFC is looking for a replacement to meet Garcia. The bout is set for the prelims on December 29 from Las Vegas.
Garcia (15-9-1) has lost his last three, including a pair of decisions. He earned a split decision victory over Nam Phan in 2010 for his last victory.
