Michael Chiesa Out of UFC on FOX 5 Fight

Ultimate Fighter Live winner Michael Chiesa was set to fight at the UFC on FOX 5 card this coming Saturday but has been forced off due to illness. The undefeated Chiesa was going to fight Marcus LeVesseur in his first bout since winning TUF 15 with the added bonus of the show being close to his hometown of Spokane, Washington, but now it looks like neither fighter will be stepping into the Octagon this weekend.

Thus far no announcement has been made regarding a replacement for Chiesa or even stating that the UFC was shuffling things around in an attempt to put something together.
