Rick Story will have to deal with another change in opponent for his UFC on FX 4 bout on June 22nd. He was originally scheduled to face off with Rich Attonito but he was removed from the card and replaced by Papy Abedi. Apparently Abedi is hurt as well though, and Story will have to prepare for a third opponent according to UFC.com:

Rick Story now has his third opponent for the June 22 FX fight card in Atlantic City, as Papy Abedi has been forced to withdraw due to injury just three weeks after stepping up to fill in for Story's original opponent, Rich Attonito. Story will now meet 9-1 Pit Elevated product Brock Jardine.

Story (13-5) has lost two fights in a row, and definitely understands how a change in opponent can affect a fight. Charlie Brenneman stepped in as a last-minute replacement for Nate Marquardt at UFC on Versus 4 last year, and handed Story one of those two recent losses. Jardine is currently on a three-fight winning streak and his lone loss came to TUF winner Tony Ferguson in a PureCombat title fight back in 2010.

The bout will take place on the preliminary card of UFC on FX 4, which will be headlined by a lightweight battle between Gray Maynard and Clay Guida.
