A couple weeks out from the UFC’s return to Arizona, an injury has changed a bout and opened the door for a fighter to make his promotional debut.

Abdul Razak Alhassan (9-1 MMA, 3-1 UFC) is out of his welterweight fight against Muslim Salikhov (13-2 MMA, 0-1 UFC) at UFC on FOX 29. In Alhassan’s place will be Ricky Rainey (13-4 MMA, 0-0 UFC), the promotion today announced.

UFC on FOX 29 will take place April 14 at Gila River Arena in Glendale, Ariz. The main card will air on FOX following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.

I like Ricky Rainey. He's not gonna go far up the ufc ranks but he puts on entertaining fights. Would've preferred Rainey against Alhassan personally. That would've been a strikers delight matchup.

Rainey was a solid Bellator talent. He’ll do good in the ufc

This is actually a better fight imo. Muslim was coming off a loss i believe and razak 2 wins. Didn’t really make much sense.
