Papy Abedi Steps In For Injured Rich Attonito Against Rick Story At UFC On FX 4

via media.ufc.tv

It looks like Papy Abedi will indeed get another shot in the UFC, but it certainly won't be easy. The Swedish-Congolese welterweight will step in as a late replacement at UFC on FX 4 on June 22nd to fight Rick Story. UFC.com has the news:

An injury has forced Rich Attonito out of his June 22nd bout against Rick Story, but "The Horror" will still see fight action in Atlantic City against Sweden's Papy Abedi, who will step in for "The Raging Bull."

Abedi (8-2) is still looking for his first win in the UFC after consecutive first-round submission losses to Thiago Alves at UFC 138 and James Head at UFC on Fuel 2. His opponent Story (13-5) is on a two-fight losing streak as well. The nature of Attonito's injury is unknown at this point.

The bout is likely to take place on the preliminary card. The main event of the show is a five-round lightweight battle between Gray Maynard and Clay Guida.
