Last week, Wantagh's Al Iaquinta was tabbed to replace the injured Paul Taylor in a fight against Anthony Njokuani scheduled for UFC Fight Night 30 in Manchester, England, next month.

This week, it is Njokuani who had to pull out of the fight with an injury.

Iaquinta, a Team Serra-Longo fighter, will now face Piotr Hallman in a lightweight bout that same night.

Iaquinta (6-2-1, 1-1 UFC) is coming off a decisive three-round victory over Ryan Couture in August at UFC 164
