Each day, The MMA Corner will provide a recap of results, event announcements, fight matchups, and injuries/cancellations from throughout the world of MMA.

Fights formerly to be held at UFC 151 moved to new events

After the cancellation of UFC 151 today, the news was followed up by a slew of fights that have been moved around to other fight cards.  The former co-main event of Jake Ellenberger vs. Jay Hieron will be the official co-main event at UFC on FX 5 where Antonio Silva and Travis Browne headline.  Additionally, two lightweight fights have been moved to the same card as Danny Castillo vs. Michael Johnson along with Shane Roller vs. Jacob Volkmann will now take place at the event.

The Toronto card will also gain another fight alongside the light heavyweight championship fight as Charlie Brenneman will now take on Kyle Noke at the event.  Also with the Toronto card, Sean Pierson was scheduled to take on Dan Miller in a middleweight contest, however an injury has forced Miller out of the fight.  An opponent for Pierson is being sought after.

The original main event at Bellator 73 tomorrow night was supposed to feature featherweight champion Pat Curran defending his title against challenger Patricio Freire, however after Curran had to pull out of the fight as a result of a broken orbital bone.  The new main event will be the light heavyweight tournament finale between Travis Wiuff and Attila Vegh.
