Nick Ring Won't Fight Costa Philippou at UFC 154 Because of an Illness

| by

UFC officials have scrapped a planned middleweight contest for this evening between Nick Ring and Costa Philippou. Ring came down with an illness following weigh-ins on Friday for UFC 154: St-Pierre vs. Condit.

No replacement for Philippou could be found, so officials scrapped the fight completely. Ring-Philippou were originally set for the main card, but their spot will now go to Mark Bocek and Rafael dos Anjos.
