“Ultimate Fighter” season three alum Matt Hamill has sustained a knee injury in training and will be unable to face Brandon Vera at UFC 102 on Aug. 29 in Portland, Ore.

Krzysztof Soszynski (18-8-1) will step in for Hamill in his second stint as an injury stand-in. The news was reported by Sherdog.com.

Soszynski gave himself a career boost in May when he replaced Houston Alexander to knock out Andre Gusmao at UFC 98, bringing his Octagon record to 2-0. It was the sixth straight win for the season eight Ultimate Fighter alum.

Vera (10-3) is on the comeback trail after dispatching Mike Patt in his last appearance at UFC 96. The San Diego resident is now 2-1 in the Octagon as a light heavyweight.
