Massenzio is the third opponent that Soszynski is scheduled to face for this event.

Kampmann is forced to pull out of UFC Versus 4.  Card now has Brown vs Howard and Attonito vs Roberts.

UFC on Versus 4 was originally supposed to be Martin Kampman versus John Howard, and Matt Brown was supposed to fight Rich Attonito.  The UFC was forced to make some changes with Kampmann’s injury, and Brown was quick to step up an replace.  The UFC then decided to bring in Daniel Roberts to fill the opening left by Brown.  Even with the multiple fight changes, this card should still be stacked.
