FightLine.com has learned it will be Matt Wiman stepping in on under two weeks notice to fight Spencer Fisher on the upcoming UFC 60 "Hughes vs. Gracie" line-up on 5/27 from the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.
Originally it was going to be Leonard Garcia in the spot, but he was forced to pull out due to an injury suffered in training.
Wiman has a 6-2 pro MMA record and has fight in the MFC and SuperBrawl organizations.
With Evan Tanner pulling out of his scheduled (but never officially announced) bout with Jeremy Horn at UFC 60 (the fight was also scrapped from the UFC 59 line-up), the injury bug continues to pop its' ugly mug in the picture anytime UFC puts together a PPV card. With just a week and a half left until the show, let's keep our fingers crossed for Royce Gracie and Matt Hughes, as without that bout this card really isn't going to sell to the mainstream audience.
