Lavar Johnson and Brendan Schaub have set a new date for their heavyweight clash after Johnson was forced to pull out of last weekend's UFC on Fox 5 event.

Johnson, who is looking to return to winning ways after defeat to Stefan Struve at UFC 146, withdrew from Saturday's card in Seattle with a groin injury.

Schaub was also pulled from the card when the UFC failed to find him a new opponent, and the pair have now been slated to step into the Octagon at UFC 157 in February.

The event will be headlined by the promotion's first women's fight when bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey takes on Liz Carmouche in Anaheim, California.
