Tyson Griffin will step in to face Takanori Gomi at ‘UFC On Versus 2’ after Joe ‘Daddy’ Stevenson was forced off the card due to a knee injury.

The switch does not make Gomi’s life any easier with Griffin being another tough opponent to face after losing in his UFC debut to Kenny Florian earlier in the year.

Griffin himself is also looking to get back to winning ways after coming up second best against the fast rising Evan Dunham.  Griffin hung in for the full three rounds though despite being in some dangerous situations at times, and at 26 years of age with a record of 14-3, he’s still a force to be reckoned with at 155lbs.

UFC On Versus 2 takes place on August 1st live on the Versus network with Jon ‘Bones’ Jones Vs Vladimir Matyushenko headlining the card.
