UFC 75: Jess Liaudin vs. Anthony Torres (not Anthony Johnson)

UFC 75 Jess Liaudin
Jess Liaudin will meet Anthony Torres -- not Anthony Johnson -- at UFC 75: "Champion vs. Champion" in a preliminary welterweight bout on September 22 from the O2 Arena in London, England, according to

Johnson is "sidelined" with a shoulder injury.

Torres is a former contestant on season two of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF). Luke Cummo sent him home early via unanimous decision in episode eight. He has one official fight inside the Octagon since that time -- a submission win (rear naked choke) over Pat Healy at UFC Fight Night 6 in August 2006.

Liaudin -- a British fighter who is training with PRIDE FC Middleweight Champion Dan Henderson at Team Quest for this bout -- submitted Dennis Siver via armbar in round one of their bout at UFC 70: "Nations Collide" in his Octagon debut. The "Joker" is also looking to extend a four-fight win streak.

UFC 75 features the unification bout between Henderson and UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Quinton "Rampage" Jackson. Michael Bisping will meet Matt Hamill in a 205-pound tilt, and Mirko Cro Cop will look to rebound against fellow heavyweight Cheick Kongo.
