An unexpected injury to Tim Means has forced a last-hour change to UFC on Fox 5 undercard as Marcus LeVesseur will step in to face Abe Trujillo. Means suffered a concussion when he slipped in the sauna while trying to make weight for tomorrow’s card. The UFC reported the change via twitter.
Luckily for the UFC, LeVesseur was available after his original UFC on Fox 5 opponent – TUF Live champion Mike Chisea – was stricken from the card with illness. The bout will serve as Trujillo’s UFC debut.
The four-fight main card of UFC on Fox 5 will be headlined by a UFC lightweight title fight between Ben Henderson and Nate Diaz. The card will also feature a light heavyweight tilt between Mauricio “Shogun” Rua and Alexander Gustaffson. The card will take place December 8 at the Key Arena in Seattle, Washington.
