Several new bouts have been announced for upcoming UFC Fight Night cards, including a chance for UFC Fight Night 52.

Urijah Faber will not be making the trip to Japan after suffering an injury. Instead, Alex Caceres – who Faber recently defeated – will step in and take on Masanori Kanehara.

Also on the September 20 card, Amir Sadollah now meets Yoshihiro Akiyama after an injury to Kyle Noke knocked him out. Kyoji Horiguchi, the original opponent for Chris Cariaso, now takes on Jon Delos Reyes after Cariaso was removed for a title fight against UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson.

In the main event, heavyweights Roy Nelson and Mark Hunt collide from the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan.

At UFC Fight Night 53, Cathal Pendred faces Gasan Umalatov, Nico Musoke – who was set to face Sadollah – now meets Alexander Yakovlev and Tor Troeng squares off against Krzysztof Jotko.

That card takes place October 4 from the Ericcson Globe Arena in Stockholm, Sweden. The main event features Gunnar Nelson vs. Rick Story.
