The UFC announced Tuesday that a middleweight matchup between Amir Sadollah and Nick Catone that had been scheduled to take place at this Saturday during UFC 91 has been canceled.
According to UFC.com, Sadollah was forced to pull out of the fight due to a leg infection. Despite an exhaustive search, a replacement was not able to be secured and a decision was made to take Catone off the card in addition to Sadollah.
Originally set to be a 10-bout event, UFC 91 is now slated to be a nine match card with a welterweight encounter between Dustin Hazelett and Tamdan McCrory being promoted from the non-televised preliminary card to the televised undercard.
Hazelett vs. McCrory joins fights involving UFC heavyweight champion Randy Couture vs. Brock Lesnar, Kenny Florian vs. Joe Stevenson, Gabriel Gonzaga vs. Josh Hendricks, and Nate Quarry vs. Demian Maia as bouts guaranteed to be televised during Saturday’s pay-per-view telecast.
