Estevan Payan vs. Alex White booked for UFC on FOX 11 with Mike Brown hurt

Mark D. Smith-USA TODAY Sports

White marks opponent number three for Payan, who was originally set to face Sean Soriano.

Former World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) featherweight champion Mike Brown has been felled by injury and bumped from the UFC on FOX 11 event inside the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida, on April 19, 2014. In his absence, Estevan Payan will move on to fight Alex White.

The promotion announced the change on Friday night.

Payan (14-5, 1 NC) could be on the chopping block following back-to-back losses. After losing a decision to Jeremy Stephens in his Octagon debut last May, "El Terrible" was pounded out by Robbie Peralta at the UFC 168 pay-per-view (PPV) event back in December.

Last chance.

White (9-0) has been perfect during his three-year stint on the regional mixed martial arts (MMA) scene, having racked up eight finishes in nine wins. "The Spartan" was last seen choking out Adam Rider at "Rumble Time Promotions" back in January.

Welcome to the big show.

UFC on FOX 11 will feature a heavyweight No. 1 contender bout as Fabricio Werdum battles a red-hot Travis Browne in the main event. In addition, Miesha Tate takes on Liz Carmouche in women's bantamweight action, while Donald Cerrone throws leather against fellow lightweight Edson Barboza.
