Newcomer White Subs for Brown vs. Payan

A change to April 19th's event in Orlando...
Former WEC featherweight champion Mike Brown has been pulled from his April 19 matchup with Estevan Payan in Orlando due to injury, opening the door for UFC newcomer Alex White to make his Octagon debut against "El Terrible."

Unbeaten in nine pro fights, Farmington, Missouri's White is known for his striking, but that hasn't stopped him from submitting five of his opponents. Former Strikeforce standout Payan is ready for anything though, especially as he seeks his first UFC win.
