Vladimir Matyushenko has been tabbed to replace Roger Hollett and face Matt Hamill at UFC 152: Benavidez vs. Johnson.
UFC officials announced the change on Monday. No reason was given for Hollett’s exit from the fight.
Both Matyushenko (26-6) and Hamill (10-4) are coming off of losses to Alexander Gustafsson.
Hamill recently announced his desire to fight again after retiring last year. “The Hammer” was also topped by Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and is looking to halt his current two-fight losing skid.
Matyushenko, also known as “The Janitor,” has mixed wins and losses over the past few years. He has competed against the likes of Gustafsson, UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira.
