Johny Hendricks has replaced Rory MacDonald as Carlos Condit's opponent at UFC 158 on March 16 in Montreal, multiple media outlets reported Monday.
MacDonald was forced to drop out because of a neck injury.
Condit (28-6) had handed MacDonald (14-1) his only professional loss in June 2010.
Hendricks (14-1) was also scheduled to fight on the March 16 card against contender Jake Ellenberger. Ellenberger (28-6) is expected to remain on the card, although an opponent has not been named.
Georges St-Pierre (23-2) is scheduled to make his eighth consecutive title defense against Nick Diaz(16-8) in the UFC 158 main event.
