An injury has forced Johnny Eduardo (26-9 MMA, 1-1 UFC) out of next week's UFC 158 event and his bantamweight bout with Yves Jabouin (18-8 MMA, 3-2 UFC).

UFC officials today announced the change, and Eduardo later tweeted that a shoulder injury is to blame.



It's not clear if a replacement will be sought, though with just 10 days until the event, it could be a challenge.

Featuring a welterweight title fight between champion Georges St-Pierre and former Strikeforce titleholder Nick Diaz, UFC 158 takes place March 16 at Montreal's Bell Centre. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FX and Facebook.

Eduardo vs. Jabouin was slated for the Facebook portion of the card.
