http://www.mmajunkie.com/news/2013/01/justin-salas-out-of-ufc-on-fx-7-edson-barboza-now-meets-newcomer-lucas-martins

A training injury has knocked Justin Salas (10-4 MMA, 1-1 UFC) out of a preliminary-card fight against Edson Barboza (10-1 MMA, 4-1 UFC) at "UFC on FX 7: Belfort vs. Bisping" later this month.

Stepping in for Salas is UFC newcomer Lucas Martins (11-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC). Sources close to the promotion on Wednesday confirmed the news to MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com).

UFC on FX 7 takes place Jan. 19 at Ginasio Estadual Geraldo Jose de Almeida, also known as Ginasio do Ibirapuera, in San Paulo, Brazil. It will be the UFC's first trip to Sao Paulo. The main card airs on FX in the U.S. and features a middleweight fight between Vitor Belfort (21-10 MMA, 10-6 UFC) and Michael Bisping (23-4 MMA, 13-4 UFC).

Martins just this past month won a pair of fights in Sao Paulo in less than a week's time. He submitted Thiago Sampaio with a first-round rear-naked choke in 43 seconds on Dec. 8, then turned around and stopped Oberdan Vieira Tenorio with a head-kick knockout on Dec. 13 under the Jungle Fight banner.

Those two wins made him 9-0 in 2012 – with eight coming by stoppage. Only one of his 11 pro fights has gone the distance. Martins has been pro for only 16 months.

Wow, great signing. That fight could be insane, both very skilled strikers. This kid is 11-0 with 9 wins in 2012 alone. His last fight at Jungle Fight 46 ended with a switch kick KO in the 2nd round.

LUCAS MARTINS- I like to fight, and I wanted to get to the UFC as fast as I could. I take a fight, then I always say I am going to take a couple days off.

MP- Most of your fights have been ended by KO or TKO, would you call your style more of a striker?

LUCAS MARTINS- I love to strike, but I am a MMA fighter. I train Jiu Jitsu, wrestling, and kickboxing. When I fight, I like to go for the knock out, this makes for a very exciting fights, that the fans really like.

LUCAS MARTINS- My manager called on New Years day. And said how would you like to fight Edson Barboza in the UFC. I knew that 2013 would be my year! What a way to start it, UFC and against a great fighter like Edson Barboza.

Edson has a very exciting style, and likes to go for the Knock out, this will make for a very exciting fight. Edson is one of the best 155 in the UFC, I am very excited about fighting the best.
