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.
That also moves the Facebook-planned fight between Antonio Carvalho and Rodrigo Damm to the FX-televised prelims.
Below is the updated fight lineup for tonight. FightLine will have complete coverage of the entire card beginning with the prelims on Facebook shortly after 6 p.m. ET.
