Another injury has hit the UFC on Fox 2 card, and now it's guillotine afficionado, Cody McKenzie, who's been forced to bow out of a scheduled lightweight bout with his fellow TUF cast-mate, Michael Johnson. Stepping in to fight Johnson will be Shane Roller, according to MMA Junkie

Roller will only have a few weeks to prepare for Johnson, but he's likely eager to get back in the Octagon as soon as possible, after suffering what he believed was a controversial loss to T.J. Grant back at UFC on Versus 6. The fight was stopped by referee Fernando Yamasaki when Grant had Roller locked in a tight armbar, but Roller claims he never tapped or verbally submitted.
