It didn't take the UFC long to find a replacement opponent for John Hathaway at UFC 138, after the news broke last night that Pascal Krauss was sidelined with a shoulder injury. The promotion announced this afternoon that Matt Brown will step in against Hathaway on the November 5th card in Birmingham, England:

Pascal Krauss has been injured, forcing him to withdraw from his scheduled bout at UFC 138. Taking Krauss' place will be Matt "The Immortal" Brown, who will test his invincibility skills against rising star John "The Hitman" Hathaway. Both men have verbally agreed to the welterweight bout, UFC president Dana White announced today.
