A planned UFC 151 welterweight contest between Kyle Noke and Charlie Brenneman has found a new home at UFC 152.

Promotion officials recently confirmed that the bout has been moved to the Sept. 22 event, which takes place at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto. Additionally, Sean Pierson now awaits a new opponent after foe Dan Miller withdrew from their pairing. UFC 152 is headlined by a light heavyweight title collision pitting Jon Jones against Vitor Belfort and will also feature a flyweight title tilt between Demetrious Johnson and Joseph Benavidez in the evening’s co-main event.

Noke, 32, makes his welterweight debut against Brenneman after dropping back-to-back bouts at 185 pounds, submitting to Ed Herman last year before suffering a unanimous decision defeat to Andrew Craig on March 3 at UFC on FX 2.

Brenneman, 31, has struggled to find consistency in the UFC’s deep welterweight waters, posting a promotional record of 4-3 in his two years with the promotion. “The Spaniard” last competed on June 8 at UFC on FX 3, submitting to an Erick Silva rear-naked choke in the first round.

Pierson was also last seen at UFC on FX 3, where he rebounded from consecutive losses to take a unanimous decision from Jake Hecht. Prior to that victory, “The Punisher” had dropped bouts to Jake Ellenberger and Dong Hyun Kim to go winless in 2011.
