UFC on FOX 5: Henry Martinez vs. Daron Cruickshank moved to FX prelims

With Lavar Johnson vs. Brendan Schaub off the card, the UFC and FOX had to do some preliminary card bout order re-shuffling.

Steve Mitchell-US PRESSWIRE

Two lightweight fights have been moved up in the UFC on FOX 5 bout order following the news that Lavar Johnson vs. Brendan Schaub was off next week's card. Via MMA Fighting:

The main change is the Henry Martinez vs. Daron Cruickshank fight will now air on FX, not Facebook, and Michael Chiesa vs. Marcus LeVesseur will be the final fight of the prelims.

Martinez vs. Cruickshank was on the UFC 151 prelims, and was moved to this card after Greg Jackson ruined MMA for an unprecedented 56th time. Now they've been upgraded from the Facebook prelims to FX. Martinez is 1-1 in the UFC with his loss coming at welterweight against Matt Riddle on short notice. Cruickshank is a TUF: Live alum who was knocked out by James Vick in the round of 16, but defeated Chris Tickle in the season finale.

This means that the only Facebook fights are Scott Jorgensen vs. John Albert and Tim Means vs. Abel Trujillo.
