Scott Jorgensen’s flyweight debut will now come against a former No. 1 contender.
Instead of meeting Ian McCall, Jorgensen will face John Dodson at UFC on FOX 9 in December from Sacramento.
Set for December 14, the card features a main event between UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis and Josh Thomson.
Dodson (15-6) is coming off an impressive finish of Darrell Montague earlier this month. Before that, the former Ultimate Fighter winner lost to UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson.
Jorgensen (14-7) decided to move down from bantamweight after splitting his six UFC bouts. His three losses came vs. Urijah Faber, Eddie Wineland and interim champion Renan Barao.
