James Krause will be making his UFC debut at UFC 161 against Sam Stout due to Isaac Vallie-Flagg sustaining a back injury. Vallie-Flagg tweeted Wednesday that he has sustained a compressed disk in his back and a muscle has torn from his hip.

Replacing Issac came very fast and replacing him will be WEC veteran James Krause. Krause has been fighting all around the United States hoping to get a shot in the UFC and this is his time to shine. Krause will be entering the octagon on a 7 fight winning streak which began back in September of 2011.
UFC 161 will take place on June 15th and the card is already stacked on the prelims where Krause and Stout will fight on. The prelims feature Jake Shields vs. Tyron Woodley and a light heavyweight bout between Ryan Jimmio and Igor Pokrajac.
