UFC Fight Night: Maia Vs. Shields Bout Order Re-Arranged Following Change

UFC officials were forced to do some jockeying for the October UFC Fight Night: Maia vs. Shields card after Jeremy Stephens came down with an injury.

Set for October 9 from Brazil, Stephens was expected to meet Rony Jason on the main card. Jason, however, was pulled, and Stephens followed suit shortly after.

A planned prelim contest between Rousimar Palhares and Mike Pierce has been promoted to the FOX Sports 1 main card.
