Albert Tumenov will welcome Andrew Todhunter to the Octagon at UFC 188 on June 13.

Todhunter replaces Hector Urbina, who withdrew from the welterweight contest due to injury. The Las Vegas-based promotion announced the change on Thursday. UFC 188 takes place at Mexico City Arena in Mexico City and is headlined by a heavyweight title clash between Cain Velasquez and Fabricio Werdum.

A two-time Legacy Fighting Championship competitor, Todhunter is 7-0 as a professional overall. The Clinch Martial Arts Academy representative has finished all seven of his victories via submission.

After falling to Ildemar Alcantara in his promotional debut, Tumenov has reeled off three consecutive triumphs, including knockout wins over Anthony Lapsley and Matt Dwyer. Most recently, he outpointed Nicholas Musoke at UFC on Fox 14.
