Elias Cepeda

Scott Jorgensen is now looking for his third opponent at the Dec. 14 UFC on Fox 9 card after John Dodson suffered an injury and has been forced out of their scheduled match up. Dodson himself was a replacement for Ian McCall, who was initially set to face Jorgensen.

Jorgensen is dropping to flyweight after losing three out of his last four fights at 135 pounds. The UFC announced Dodson's injury on Twitter Tuesday.

A new opponent for Jorgensen is expected to be announced soon. UFC on Fox 9 is headlined by flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson defending his title against Joseph Benevidez.
