An injury has forced Josh Shockley out of a planned UFC 179 bout with Fabricio Camoes. Officials have tabbed Tony Martin to replace him.
Set for October 25 from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and the Maracanazinho Gymnasium, the event features a headline fight between UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo and Chad Mendes. Also, Glover Teixeira meets Phil Davis in the co-main event.
Martin (8-2) sports an 0-2 Octagon mark, including an August submission loss to Beneil Dariush. Camoes (14-8-1) is on a similar two-fight losing skid, having been submitted by Jim Miller.
