Cody Gibson gets another shot at his first UFC win at UFC Fight Night 44.
Gibson will face Johny Bedford in a bantamweight contest at the AT&T Center on June 28 in San Antonio, Texas, according to UFC officials Tuesday.
Yahya dropped out of the fight for undisclosed reasons. The Yahya-Bedford fight was a rematch of their contest at UFC Fight Night 39. The fight was declared a no-contest after an accidental headbutt.
Gibson (11-4) lost his UFC debut via unanimous decision to Aljamain Sterling at UFC 170. The loss snapped a six-fight win streak.
Bedford is 3-1 (with one no-contest) over his past five fights.
Cub Swanson will square off against Jeremy Stephens in the main event.
