TORONTO -- Canadian Roger (The Hulk) Hollett has had to pull out of his UFC fight later this month against Wagner Prado due to injury.

The 34-year-old light-heavyweight from Halifax was due to fight on a Jan. 19 televised card in Brazil.

The UFC says he has been sidelined by a torn bicep.

Hollett (13-4) has been replaced by Ildemar Alcantara.

In other UFC news, lightweight Isaac Vallie-Flagg will make his UFC debut against veteran Yves Edwards at UFC 156 on Feb. 2. Vallie-Flagg has won his last 11 fights.

Undefeated bantamweight Dustin Kimura will make his UFC debut on the same card against Chico Camus.
