It didn’t take long for the UFC to find a replacement for Al Iaquinta to fight Justin Gaethje at UFC Fight Night 135.

Just hours after Iaquinta said he was not going to fight Gaethje (18-2 MMA, 1-2 UFC) at the August event, James Vick (13-1 MMA, 9-1 UFC) has agreed to step in and fight in the new lightweight headliner.

UFC official confirmed the matchup following an initial report from ESPN.

The latest UFC Fight Night 135 lineup includes:

Justin Gaethje vs. James Vick
Deiveson Figueiredo vs. John Moraga
Angela Hill vs. Alexa Grasso
Antonio Braga Neto vs. Andrew Sanchez
Eryk Anders vs. Tim Williams
Drew Dober vs. Jon Tuck
Luke Sanders vs. Rani Yahya

I got a feeling that Vick is going to beat Justin real bad. It is still going to take a round and a half to stop him, but Justin will be a seriously reduced asset after this one.

Could be, despite being finished twice in a row I still think Gaethje will give Vick problems with his toughness

If he does Vick is going to be right in the mix for a title fight. He better not leave his chin up high though or Gaethje might knock that head into the rafters.
