With England's Danny Mitchell forced to withdraw from his UFC 173 bout with China Top Team's Li Jingliang, unbeaten David Michaud will step up to the plate for the May 24 opener in Las Vegas.

A South Dakota native who competed on season 16 of The Ultimate Fighter, Michaud (7-0) said of his Octagon debut, "I have been training for this since I was 15 and now that I finally got the call I am ready to show all the hard work that I have put in to get here."
