And in just a matter of hours the UFC proved Abdelaziz’s conviction to be true, finding a replacement in James Vick. UFC officials confirmed the fight following an initial report from ESPN.

Right after Al Iaquinta pulled out of the fight, James Vick started teasing his way into the matchup.

Vick was earlier scheduled to fight Paul Felder at UFC Fight Night 133 on July 14, but now “The Irish Dragon” is left without an opponent for the second consecutive time after he was also left out the shuffle when Iaquinta stepped in to fight Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 223 in April.
