An injury forced Erik Koch (15-4-0) to pull out with his bout with Drew Dober (16-7-0, 1NC) at UFC 203.

Koch looked impressive in a win over Shane Campbell  at UFC Fight Night 88, but has fought only three times over the last two and a half years.

Koch’s replacement, 26-year-old California native Jason Gonzalez (10-2-0), will make his octagon doubt.

Gonzalez is currently on a six-fight win streak, including a TKO over Chris Padillia at RFA 38.

The 27-year-old Dober defeated Scott Holtzman by unanimous decision at UFC 195.

UFC 203 takes place September 10th at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland. Heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic defends against Alistair Overeem in the main event.
