Another day, another change to UFC 149. The cursed card of Calgary sees a preliminary card swap this time, with an injured welterweight being replaced by a guy that fought just 12 days ago. UFC.com has the news:
The summer's outbreak of injuries has spread again on the UFC 149 card, with Canadian Claude Patrick the latest athlete forced out of a planned bout.
Ebersole (50-14-1, 1 NC) is now 4-0 in the UFC. He had been talking about a possible drop to lightweight, but for now he'll get back in there against Head (8-2) who made his welterweight debut against Papy Abedi and won by first-round submission at UFC on Fuel 2 earlier this year.
