Sources close to have revealed that Mitch Gagnon has been forced to pull out of his fight with . The Welshman will now face late replacement Albert Morales.

Johns (13-0) has not fought since making his UFC debut last year at UFC Fight Night 99 in Belfast, Northern Ireland. The former Titan FC bantamweight champion defeated Kwan Ho Kwak via a unanimous decision after a dominant 15-minutes. Johns was then expected to fight at UFC Fight Night 107, but unfortunately his scheduled opponent Ian Entwistle was pulled from the event 24-hours before the fight following doctor's advice. It was a heart breaking moment for the Welshman, but luckily for him it appears he won't be left without a dance partner for a second event running.
