Former Bellator MMA welterweight king Lyman Good has signed with the UFC and will make his promotional debut against Andrew Craig in San Diego on July 15.
Good replaces Edgar Garcia, who was forced to withdraw from the 170-pound clash due to injury. The UFC announced the change on Wednesday. The UFC Fight Night card takes place at Valley View Casino Center and is headlined by a heavyweight tilt pitting Frank Mir against Todd Duffee.
Good is unbeaten in his last five fights, including a first-round submission of ex-UFC and Strikeforce talent Nah-Shon Burrell in his most recent outing at Cage Fury Fighting Championship 48. Good went 8-3 during a lengthy stint in Bellator before leaving the promotion following a victory over Dante Rivera in April 2013.
Craig will be moving down to welterweight after posting a 3-3 mark in the Octagon at 185 pounds. The 29-year-old Texan has lost three of his last four fights, including back-to-back setbacks against Luke Barnatt and Cezar Ferreira.
