Another injury has hit the UFC Live on Versus 4 card.
Welterweight Martin Kampmann has been forced to withdraw from his fight against John Howard due to an undisclosed injury, the organization announced late Monday night. As a result, Howard will now face Matt Brown, who was originally scheduled to fight Rich Attonito.
Attonito will now face Daniel Roberts, who most recently lost to Claude Patrick at UFC 129 in April.
Brown (11-10) has lost his last three fights in a row to Brian Foster, Chris Lytle and Ricardo Almeida. Prior to this streak, the 30-year-old had won three in a row.
Howard (14-6) is riding a two-fight losing streak in the fight. He lost via doctor stoppage against Jake Ellenberger in August and a unanimous decision to Thiago Alves in December.
The Attonito (9-4) vs. Roberts (12-2) 170-pound fight will most likely take place on the non-televised portion of the card.
UFC Live on Versus 4, headlined by Rick Story vs. Nate Marquardt, takes place at Pittsburgh's Consol Energy Center on June 26.

Can anyone top the big three of Silva, Jones, and GSP as the best pound-for-pounder fighter?
