Gunnar Nelson will now face former TUF contest Damarques Johnson at UFC on Fuel 5 in Nottingham, after his previous opponent was forced to withdraw through injury.

The bout, which will take place at a catchweight of 175 pounds, comes after Pascal Krauss was sidelined with an injury sustained in training.

Nelson is making his debut in the UFC, while Johnson is hoping to break a two-bout losing streak.
