UFC Fight Night 104 in Houston Gets Two New Matchups Due to Injuries

By Tristen Critchfield Jan 24, 2017

Injuries have led to a pair of new bouts at UFC Fight Night 104.

Abel Trujillo and James Vick will square off at lightweight after their original foes, Evan Dunham and Johnny Case, respectively, were forced to withdraw from the card due to injury. Additionally, Niko Price will replace Sheldon Westcott and face Alex Morono in a welterweight scrap.

UFC Fight Night 104 takes place at the Toyota Center in Houston on Feb. 4 and is headlined by a featherweight bout pitting Dennis Bermudez against Chan Sung Jung. The evening’s main card will be televised on Fox Sports 1.

Trujillo has won five of his last six in the Octagon, including a three-round verdict against Jordan Rinaldi in his most recent appearance at UFC Fight Night 88. After winning his first nine professional bouts, Vick suffered his first defeat at UFC 199, falling to Beneil Dariush via first-round knockout.

Morono is currently riding a seven-fight winning streak, with victories over Kyle Noke and James Moontasri in UFC competition. Price made his Octagon debut at UFC 207, where he submitted Brandon Thatch with an arm-triangle choke in the opening stanza.
