TORONTO - A pair of fighters dropped from the recent Seattle card due to injury or illness have been added to UFC 157.

The Feb. 23 show in Anaheim, Calif., will feature a heavyweight matchup of Lavar (Big) Johnson and Brendan (The Hybrid) Schaub. The fight was scrapped the week before the Seattle show when Johnson was injured.

Michael (Maverick) Chiesa, who bowed out of Seattle due to illness, will fight lightweight Anton Kuivanen at UFC 157.
