Costa Philippou's UFC 154 fight canceled
Long Island's Costa Philippou will not be fighting tonight at UFC 154 as originally planned.
His opponent, Nick Ring, fell ill after weigh-ins Friday evening in Montreal and was pulled from the card. With such a late-notice adjustment, there was no way to find a replacement to fight the middleweight Philippou.
The lightweight fight between Mark Bocek and Rafael dos Anjos will be moved to the main card on pay-per-view.
