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 co-main event hasn't been decided upon yet, but the card will likely include a second bout between Phil Davis and Wagner Prado, a welterweight clash between Mike Pierce and Aaron Simpson, and an elite flyweight bout between Jussier "Formiga" da Silva and John Dodson.
Here's how the card looks right now.
