Sean-Spencer-Personal-PicFollowing an injury to his original opponent, Sean Spencer will now face UFC newcomer Drew Dober at the TUF 18 Finale, UFC officials announced on Tuesday.

Dober steps in for Sergio Moraes, who was injured and forced to pull out of the card, which takes place on Nov. 30 in Las Vegas.

Spencer comes into the fight fresh off his first UFC win, a split-decision victory over Yuri Villefort at UFC Fight Night 28. The fighter has come out on top in four of his last five outings.

Dober comes into the UFC on a four-fight winning streak, looking to make it five in a row with a win over Spencer. Three out of those four wins have come by submission, all of which were rear-naked chokes.

The TUF 18 Finale will take place at the Mandalay Bay Events Center, and is headlined by a lightweight fight between Gray Maynard and Nate Diaz.
