UFC officials have confirmed Urijah Faber will take on Scott Jorgensen in the main event on the Ultimate Fighter Finale card on April 13.

The organisation was left scrambling for a new main event after Demetrious Johnson was forced out of a title defence against John Moraga on account of injury.

UFC president Dana White was swift in filling the void, as he took to Twitter to confirm Faber would face Jorgensen at bantamweight.

It will be a swift return to action for Faber who was only recently in the Octagon when beating Ivan Menjivar at UFC 157.

Jorgensen's most recent fight was a win over John Albert in December.
