UFC 154 Lineup Shuffled Following Nick Ring's Exit Due To Sickness
By Dana Becker | November 17, 2012
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.
