Remember that Matt Mitrione fight with Brendan Schaub that pitted the two "The Ultimate Fighter" teammates against each other? Y'know, the one with the vicious trash talk building it up? The heavyweight bout we were all looking forward at UFC on Fox 8? It's not happening.

Ariel Helwani reports an injury to Mitrione has knocked the fight off its card. Instead of finding a replacement opponent for Schaub so close to the fight, the UFC is reportedly thinking they will add this fight to a later card.

Schaub/Mitrione isn't the only fight that's been changed. Andy Ogle's injury forced him out of his UFC on Fox Sports 1 1 fight. Now, Connor McGregor will fight Max Holloway. McGregor is coming off a quick knockout win at UFC on Fuel 9. Holloway dropped a split decision to Dennis Bermudez at UFC 160.
