Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has once again stitched up its UFC on FX 4 fight card, currently scheduled for the Revel Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, NJ, on Fri., June 22, 2012.

Rick Story will get yet another change in opponent following an injury to Papy Abedi, according to an update from UFC.com.

Stepping in for the cigar-smoking Swede will be Octagon newcomer Brock Jardine (9-1), who comes into his short-notice fight against the welterweight veteran having won three straight contests on the regional scene.

Seven of his nine ways have come by way of (T)KO or submission.

Story (13-5), meanwhile, is in the midst of a two-fight losing skid, dropping back-to-back unanimous decisions to Charlie Brenneman and Martin Kampmann, respectively. Prior to the setbacks, "Horror" reeled off six straight victories, including decision wins over top division stalwarts Johny Hendricks and Thiago Alves.

His performance in South Jersey will go a long way toward establishing whether or not he was a contender or just a pretender.

UFC on FX 4 will feature a lightweight showdown between Gray Maynard vs. Clay Guida in the main event of the evening. It will also mark the welterweight debut of Dan Miller, who takes on Ricardo Funch in main card action, among other bouts.
