Krzysztof Soszynski in for Houston Alexander at UFC 98

Krzysztof Soszynski has been named as Houston Alexander's replacement against Andre Gusmao for UFC 98.

Soszynski, coming off a win on April 18, is reporting back to camp for this May 23 fight in Las Vegas.

News arrived on Sunday that Alexander suffered a broken hand and had to withdraw from the already injury-plagued card.

Soszynski was eliminated in the semifinals of "The Ultimate Fighter 8" competition but has won two straight coming out of the show. He tapped out both Shane Primm and Brian Stann with what has become his trademark submission, a kimura hold.

Gusmao will look to bounce back from his first career loss last August during his UFC debut at UFC 87.
