An injury has forced Gilbert Melendez out of his upcoming fight at ‘The Ultimate Fighter’ finale so Arnold Allen will get a new opponent in his place.

The British featherweight will now face Rick Glenn on Nov. 30 at the Pearl at the Palms Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. UFC officials announced the news on Monday.

There’s no word on the severity of Melendez’s injury or when he’ll be able to return to action.

Glenn has gone 3-1 over his past four bouts including victories over Gavin Tucker and Dennis Bermudez in his most recent performance.

Now Glenn will attempt to hand Allen his first loss in the UFC with the highly touted prospect reeling off four straight wins to begin his career inside the Octagon.

‘The Ultimate Fighter’ 28 Finale will be headlined by a welterweight main event pitting Rafael dos Anjos against Kamaru Usman.
