UFC On FX 5 was originally scheduled to take place in Indianapolis in September, but had to be moved due to arena booking concerns. Now it will take place on October 5th in Minneapolis, and has a big main event. Travis Browne, who was scheduled to fight Ben Rothwell at UFC on Fox 4 until Rothwell pulled out late, will instead get the chance to main event his first card against former Strikeforce fighter Antonio Silva. A bunch of changes were made in the wake of the UFC 151 cancellation, and the card now has a few new fights.
Here's how the card looks right now.
