An injury in training to Vagner Rocha has forced the cancellation of a fight set for this Saturday at UFC 172 with Joe Ellenberger.
Ellenberger was expected to meet Yancy Medeiros, but the UFC moved Medeiros to the main card and Jim Miller when Bobby Green went down.
Now, Ellenberger, the brother of UFC welterweight Jake Ellenberger, will have to wait to make his Octagon debut. Rocha suffered an injury while training in Baltimore. Ellenberger has overcome a rare blood disease to continue fighting.
The updated lineup is below:
