Another fighter was scrapped from UFC on Versus 5's lineup, as Leonard Garcia bows out from his match against Alex Caceres due to injury.

Another injury hits UFC on Versus 5 lineup, as Leonard Garcia withdraws from his match against Alex Caceres. The promotion announced the injury last Tuesday, and tapped Jim Hettes to fill-in Leonard Garcia’s shoes.

Jim Hettes has an incredible record of 8-0, all of it comes via submission. He was eyed by the UFC last year, but he was not able to sign a contract due to commitments to another promotion.

UFC on Versus 5 will be the promotion’s first event in Wisconsin, and it will kick off at the Bradley Center in Milwaukee. The event will headline a welterweight bout between Dan Hardy and Chris Lytle. Also in the main event is a lightweight duel between Jim Miller and Ben Henderson.
