WEC veteran Leonard Garcia (15-7-1) has been removed from his scheduled bout against Alex "Bruce Leroy" Caceres (4-3) at "UFC on Versus 5" due to an undisclosed injury sustained during training camp. Undefeated featherweight prospect Jim Hettes (8-0) has been tabbed to fill the vacated spot.
A highly regarded up-and-comer, Hettes has ingrained himself in the Northeast fight scene by finishing all eight of his opponents via submission -- six of which came in the first round. The 24-year-old's average professional bout time is just two minutes and six seconds.
Also highlighting the main card is a lightweight bout between Jim Miller (20-2) and former-WEC champion Ben Henderson (13-2), a welterweight bout between ‘The Ultimate Fighter 7" winner Amir Sadollah (5-2) and Duane Ludwig (20-11), and a lightweight bout between Charles Oliveira (14-1-1) and Donald Cerrone (15-3-1). The action will be broadcast live on Versus.
