A pair of injuries have reshaped the undercards on the UFC's upcoming pay-per-view schedule, as top-15 ranked fighters Bryan Caraway and Darrell Montague have both been forced to withdraw from scheduled bouts, UFC officials announced Tuesday.
A replacement opponent for Martins has yet to be announced.
Likewise, 26-year-old flyweight prospect Montague (13-3), who lost via first-round knockout to John Dodson in his UFC debut, was expected to meet Will Campuzano (13-5) at UFC 171, prior to being forced to withdraw with an undisclosed injury.
Campuzano will now square off against promising knockout artist Justin Scoggins (8-0).
Scoggins, an undefeated 21-year-old who accepted the replacement fight with nearly seven weeks left to prepare, made short work of Richie Vaculik in his UFC debut last December, ending Vaculik's night with a hailstorm of strikes midway through the first round.
UFC 170 takes place February 22, 2014 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, NV, and is headlined by a women's bantamweight title bout between UFC champion Ronda Rousey and Olympic silver medalist Sara McMann.
