As reported on Fighters.com. BJJ ace Robert Drysdale was set to make his UFC debut at UFC 167, but he was pulled from the card by The Nevada State Athletic Commission for testing for three times the allowed levels for testosterone in an out of competition drug test. The UFC has now confirmed that Gian Villante will step in in his place and take on Cody Donovan. Both Villante and Donovan are looking to rebound from losses in their last bout.

In the main event, UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St-Pierre will take on number one contender Johny Hendricks for all the welterweight marbles. In the co main event, Light Heavyweights ‘Sugar’ Rashad Evans will take on Chael Sonnen.
