Adlan Amagov (7-1-1 MMA, 0-0 SF) is supposed to be the one to meet Ron Stallings on the said event, but was forced to leave the game due to unknown reasons. Replacing him is Brian McLaughlin, whose bout against Brandon Garner during the “The Ultimate Fighter 8″ was declared a no-contest, after Brandon Garner lands an illegal knee to his head. UFC President, Dana White, then ruled Brian McLaughlin to move on to the house. However, he suffered from a fractured nose which hindered him to fight in any UFC event.
Brian McLaughlin’s last fight was during a regional event in Massachusetts last August 2009, wherein he obtained a submission victory over Luis Felix. He will now return to the cage to face middleweight champ, Ron Stallings.
