In more injury news, Rich Attonito has been forced to withdraw from his upcoming welterweight scrap against Rick Story at UFC on FX 4 on June 22nd. Papy Abedi has agreed to replace Attonito to take on Story.

Will the third time be the charm for Abedi (8-2)? He entered the UFC riding an eight bout winning streak but has since suffered consecutive rear-naked choke submission losses. He fell to Thiago Alves at UFC 138 and most recently to James Head at UFC on Fuel TV 2. Seven of Abedi’s career wins have come via stoppage with five knockouts and two submissions.

Story (13-5) will also be looking to put an end to a two fight skid in which he was outpointed by Charlie Brenneman and Martin Kampman. Prior to the losses, Story had won six straight fights in the UFC which included victories over Thiago Alves, Johny Hendricks and Dustin Hazelett.

UFC on FX 4 takes place from Revel in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Headlining the event is a lightweight battle between Clay Guida and Gray Maynard.
