It’s been a day of changes for the UFC Fight Night 24 card in Seattle, as now Johny Hendricks has been tapped to step in for an injured Dennis Hallman to face T.J. Waldburger on the March card.

The UFC made an announcement about the switch on Saturday.

“Dennis Hallman is out of UFC Fight Night March 26 with a knee injury,” said UFC president Dana White. “Powerful wrestler Johny Hendricks has verbally agreed to replace him against submission specialist TJ Waldburger in a preliminary fight.”

Hendricks comes into the fight after suffering a defeat to Rick Story in his last bout, and looks for redemption against Waldburger in a welterweight bout on the card.
