The upcoming UFC on Versus 4 card in Pittsburgh has been reshuffled after a training injury forced Martin Kampmann out of his scheduled bout against John Howard.

In to replace Kampmann will be former ‘Ultimate Fighter’ competitor Matt Brown, who was already competing on the same show, but will now move to the main card to face Howard.

Meanwhile, with Brown pulled to face Howard, his original opponent Rich Attonito will face late replacement Daniel ‘Ninja’ Roberts on the card.

The UFC made the announcement about the switch late Monday night. No details were available about the extent of Kampmann’s injuries.

Daniel Roberts is the one new fighter in this whole scenario and the Skrap Pack team fighter will return to action after suffering a loss to Claude Patrick at UFC 129 in late April.

Prior to that loss, Roberts had picked up three wins in a row, including two first round submission victories.

Roberts vs. Attonito will remain on the preliminary part of the card.
