Mike Chiesa Scratched From Saturday’s UFC On Fox 5 Card With Illness

UFC officials have been forced to re-adjust Saturday’s UFC on Fox: Henderson vs. Diaz fight lineup again, as Mike Chiesa has been forced out of a bout with Marcus LeVesseur. Chiesa was knocked out due to an illness.

Chiesa (8-0) was looking to compete for the first time since winning the title of Ultimate Fighter. LeVesseur (22-6) was a replacement for Rafaello Oliveira for the bout.

Chiesa-LeVesseur was set for the FX-televised prelims. Their spot has yet to be announced by the UFC, which has three fights planned for the Facebook stream.
