Matt Mitrione and Rob Broughton are scheduled to fight once again. The two were originally going to go at it this weekend, but they'll do it in Minnesota on October 5th instead. MMA Weekly has it:

A heavyweight bout originally scheduled for UFC on Fox 4 will still take place, except it has been pushed back to Oct. 5 as part of the newly created UFC on FX 5 show instead.

Heavyweights Matt Mitrione and Rob Broughton have agreed to meet at the upcoming show in Minneapolis after Broughton was forced off this weekend's card due to "personal issues."

Even though the UFC just recently removed their bout from the UFC on Fox 4 card, Mitrione told MMA Fighting a few days ago that it had actually been scrapped five weeks ago. It was why he didn't accept a late replacement role against Travis Browne on the card when Ben Rothwell got hurt.

Either way, UFC on FX 5 has another good heavyweight fight to accompany the main event bout between the aforementioned Travis Browne and Antonio Silva.
