UFC Fight Night 25: Jake Shields Staying in Main Event, Johnson and Semerzier Injured

DaMarques JohnsonJake Shields will still face Jake Ellenberger in the main event on UFC Fight Night 25 despite the recent death of his father, but injuries have forced welterweight DaMarques Johnson and featherweight Mackens Semerzier off the September 17 event in New Orleans.

The Ultimate Fighter 11’s Seth Baczynski has stepped in for Johnson and will meet TUF 13’s Clay Harvison at “Battle on the Bayou,” while a replacement is still being sought to fill in for Semerzier against Mike Lullo.

Joining Shields vs. Ellenberger on the Spike-televised main card are Alan Belcher vs. Jason MacDonald, Court McGee vs. Dongi Yang, and Erik Koch vs. Jonathan Brookins.
