Today, the UFC announced that John Dodson, fresh off of his victory at UFC 166, will step in on short notice to fight Scott Jorgensen. Here is the tweet from UFC News:

Dodson recently fought and KO’ed UFC newcomer, Darrell Montague. Now Dodson will take on a grizzled veteran in Jorgensen. Jorgensen is coming off a loss to Urijah Faber at Bantamweight, which made him decide to drop down to Flyweight.
Ian McCall was set to welcome Jorgensen to the Flyweight weight class, before a grisly hand injury forced him out of the fight. The picture of McCall’s injury will be posted below, so do not scroll down farther if you do not want to see it.
Here is the injury to McCall’s hand that forced him out of the fight:
