The bout order is set for UFC 151 on September 1st in Las Vegas, Nevada. While the injury-bug has not come in volume for this event, it did strike the most important fight on the card besides the main event, as Josh Koscheck pulled out of his fight against Jake Ellenberger due to a bulging disc. The UFC chose Jay Hieron as the replacement, and he's a familiar foe for Ellenberger, as Hieron won by unanimous decision in 2006 in their IFL days. According to Heavy.com and the UFC's official event page, Ellenberger vs. Hieron is still the night's co-main.
In Koscheck's place, the UFC is bringing back longtime veteran Jay Hieron, and he and Ellenberger now meet in the co-main event.
UFC officials recently announced that contest.
With that in mind, here is the evening's fight card order, which sees the usual 5-fight PPV, 4-fight FX broadcast, and 2-fight Facebook stream.
Main Card (PPV)
Jon Jones vs. Dan Henderson (for the UFC Light Heavyweight Championship)
Jake Ellenberger vs. Jay Hieron (co-main event)
Dennis Siver vs. Eddie Yagin
Dennis Hallman vs. Thiago Tavares
John Lineker vs. Yasuhiro Urushitani
Charlie Brenneman vs. Kyle Noke
Shane Roller vs. Jacob Volkmann
