Dillashaw, the 12-bout lineup for “UFC 158: St-Pierre vs. Diaz” has once against been finalized. A neck and back injury abruptly forced Rory MacDonald out of his rematch against Carlos Condit, which opened the door for Johny Hendricks to leave Jake Ellenberger behind and slide into the co-main event. Ellenberger now welcomes Nate Marquardt back to the big leagues. Get it? Got it? Good! Dillashaw replaces injured Mitch Gagnon to face Issei Tamura in the prelims.
