UFN 10: Johnson replaces Bruno against Reiner

Welterweight fighter Anthony Johnson (3-0) will replace Steve Bruno (11-3) and face Chad Reiner (13-2) at UFC Fight Night 10, according to UFC.com.

Earlier this week Bruno -- a member of the American Top Team camp -- had to withdraw from the bout with a torn rotator cuff, giving the UFC literally just a few days to find a fill-in.

This will be the first appearance inside the Octagon for Johnson, who previously competed for Rocky Mountain Nationals-MMA promotions and Pangea Fights.

He last fought in September 2006, earning a split-decision win over Keith Wilson (6-3).

UFC Ultimate Fight Night 10 is slated for this upcoming Tuesday, June 12, at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida.

The Spike television special is headlined by a lightweight rematch between Spencer Fisher and Sam Stout, as well as a welterweight showdown between Jon Fitch and Roan Carneiro.
