Bobby Green replaces Michael Johnson, takes on Josh Thomson at UFC on FOX 12

UFC on FOX 12 is one of the most stacked cards of the year, but the event lost a huge lightweight contender fight this afternoon when Michael Johnson was forced to withdraw from his fight against Josh Thomson due to injury.

With only two weeks remaining before the event, the UFC has decided to pull Bobby Green from his scheduled UFC Fight Night 47 bout against Abel Trujillo to step in and replace Johnson against Thomson at UFC on FOX 12.

With the addition of the No. 12 lightweight Green to the card, the event still has an incredibly enticing lightweight bout to look forward to. If either man puts on an exceptional performance they will likely be one win away from a UFC title shot.

UFC on FOX 12 will be headlined by one of the most highly anticipated fights of the year. Former UFC title challenger Robbie Lawler will go head to head with the streaking TUF alum Matt Brown in a No. 1 welterweight contender bout.

UFC on FOX 12 takes place on July 26 at the SAP Center in San Jose, California.
