Brad Pickett is out with an injury, and Demetrious Johnson will step in on short notice to fight Miguel Torres - the former WEC bantamweight titleholder at UFC 130 next month, according to UFC.com:

"The fastest man in the division has answered the call, and Demetrious Johnson will move into Pickett’s spot to face the former divisional kingpin," said UFC president Dana White. "Both men have verbally agreed to the fight."
