That considered, I'm still really surprised Phan/Siver wasn't on the televised prelims, seems like a no-brainer.
    Yeah, I get adding some name value to the televised prelims to add some interest but Phan/Siver should not be buried on Facebook. The only thing I can think of is that this fight was originally moved to the card from the canceled 151, albeit in the form of Siver/Yagin. Perhaps that had something to do with its placement. Regardless, I'm actually going to this event and even with the two fights that have been canceled it's still an 11 fight card. There's still lots of action on the prelims and most importantly the main card has remained intact. I can't wait!

    Yeah Siver Phan will be a war. Bump that shit up immediately.

    Dam Chiesa was my SOTN pick too. I thought it was pretty good odds he'd get a choke.

    Agreed man. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

    Michael Chiesa ill, unable to compete at UFC on FOX 5 vs. Marcus LeVesseur

    Michael Chiesa ill, unable to compete at UFC on FOX 5 vs. Marcus LeVesseur - Bloody Elbow

    With just one week before the UFC returns to Seattle, yet another preliminary card fight has been scrapped as TUF: Live winner Michael Chiesa has been removed from his bout with Marcus LeVesseur.

    The injuries and illnesses continue to wreak havoc on UFC on FOX 5's preliminary card. After Brendan Schaub vs. Lavar Johnson was scrapped as the leading prelim fight on FX, Michael Chiesa vs. Marcus LeVesseur became the new "feature fight". As of today that is no longer the case, as Chiesa has been forced off the card according to the UFC's official twitter account.

    TUF Live winner Michael Chiesa forced off Saturday's Seattle card due to illness - get well soon, @MikeMav22
    If you're keeping score, that's the 7th different preliminary card change. There's no word on a replacement or if there will even be one on such short notice.

    Chiesa won TUF: Live by submitting Al Iaquinta, and the Washingtonian was given a chance to fight on a local UFC show against Rafaello Oliveira, but Oliveira was injured and LeVesseur replaced him. Now it's Chiesa off the card and it likely forces the UFC to reshuffle the bout order yet again.
