No, this is not a repeat, yet another fighter has been forced off the UFC 149 fight card. Canadian welterweight Claude Patrick will not be fighting on his home turf in Calgary as an injury has forced him off the card. Replacing him on the UFC 149 main card against James Head will be Brian Ebersole.

It’s Friday night and the weekend is locked and loaded with MMA action, starting with the UFC on FX 4 from Atlantic City, New Jersey. This free card is headlined by a lightweight five round non-title main event between Clay Guida and Gray Maynard in a battle to stay above water in the 155 pound division.
The fighters for tomorrows UFC on FX 4 took to the scale tonight inside the same venue they will be fighting tomorrow and all but one of the 24 fighters successfully made weight. Preliminary card fighter C.J. Keith weighed in at 157 pounds for his lightweight bout with Ramsey Nijem and will be fined a hefty 20% of his purse.
Friday’s UFC on FX 4 will mark the FX Network’s fourth live event and presents a good addition to the fight weekends that also includes UFC 147. New Jersey will play host to the night’s action as many top UFC fighters look to advance their position in their respective divisions.
With all the complaining about Saturdays UFC 147 let’s not forget about Friday’s UFC on FX 4: Maynard vs. Guida from the Revel Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Coming off last month’s UFC on FOX event, it’s the promotions second trip to the state of New Jersey in less than two months.
For those of us skipping the abysmal UFC 147 card, we have an excellent and free card taking place at the UFC on FX 4 that should prove to be action-packed. In our main event, Gray Maynard will look to rebound from the first loss of his career as he faces lightweight perma-contender Clay Guida in an epic bout. With an emphasis on the lower weight classes for this card, we’re sure to see some fast and fierce battles, and there’s plenty of opportunity to make some quick cash here.
Rocker of the UFC’s most original “Harrow” and veteran of 65 fights, Brian Ebersole looks to continue his winning ways June 22nd on the UFC on FX 4 card. Ebersole will be going for his 11th straight victory when he meets submission savvy TJ Waldburger on the night’s main card. Waldburger has also strung together some quality wins himself and looks to build his worth when he clashes against the wild and always dangerous Ebersole next week.
Once again MMA proved that you never know and that anything can happen when you step into the cage. Take tonight’s UFC 140 in Toronto, Canada for example, six of the 12 fights ended in the opening round while another three didn’t make it out of the second round. The exciting night might be in the books but the results from tonight will be talked about for a long time across the internet.
