A UFC representative has told SWFight.com that Johny Hendericks will now face Carlos Condit at UFC 158. Rory MacDonald was forced out of the contest against Condit due to a neck injury he suffered recently. Hendericks is currently ranked the number 1 contender for the UFC Welterweight title.
It was expected that he would face the winner of the UFC 158 main event between Georges St-Pierre and Nick Diaz, that of course all changes depending on the outcome of his contest with Condit.
The card is set to take place March 16th at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
