    Just hours after learning that James Irvin was forced out of UFC 98 with a knee injury, MMAWeekly.com has confirmed that Xavier Foupa-Pokam will step in to replace him to face Drew McFedries in a middleweight showdown.

    The news was confirmed late on Wednesday night with sources close to the fight stating verbal agreements are in place at this point, but nothing officially signed.

    Xavier Foupa-Pokam was on a seven-fight win streak up until his UFC debut earlier this month. He was derailed at UFC 97 by former Pride star Denis Kang, losing a three-round decision.

    Seizing the opportunity to step back into action quickly, Foupa-Pokam will look to put his considerable striking skills up against a tough opponent in Miletich fighter Drew McFedries.

    Currently holding a 3-4 record in the UFC, McFedries has to feel the pressure in what is essentially a must win situation to stay with the promotion. Always exciting in his fights, McFedries brings a wealth of experience into his match-up against Foupa-Pokam.

    There was no word if the fight between McFedries and Foupa-Pokam would remain on the main card or get moved to the preliminary slot for the show.

    Stay tuned to MMAWeekly.com for more information on UFC 98 as it becomes available.
