Johnny Bedford's recent string of bad luck continues.

Bedford was scheduled to meet Nick Denis on the undercard of UFC on FOX 3, but according to Denis' manager Robin Black, Bedford recently pulled out of the fight due to an undisclosed injury. Instead, Denis will meet fellow Canadian Roland Delorme on the undercard of the May 5 event.

Bedford was supposed to face Mitch Gagnon on the undercard of UFC on FOX 2 in January, but the bout was scrapped after Gagnon couldn't get a work visa to enter the United States. Bedford (18-9-1) hasn't fought since defeating Louis Gaudinot at the TUF 14 Finale in December.

Denis (11-2), a native of Ottawa, ON, Canada, won his UFC debut in January when he defeated Joseph Sandoval via knockout in just 22 seconds. Delorme (7-1), of Winnipeg, MB, Canada, defeated Josh Ferguson via third-round rear-naked-choke at the TUF 14 Finale.

UFC on FOX 3, headlined by Nate Diaz vs. Jim Miller, takes place at the Izod Center in East Rutherford, N.J.
