An injury has sidelined T.J. Dillashaw (6-1 MMA, 2-1 UFC), forcing him out of the next UFC on FOX event.

But a Washington native has stepped up to fill the gap at UFC on FOX 5 in Seattle. Bryan Caraway (17-5 MMA, 2-0 UFC) will fill in for Dillashaw against Mike Easton (13-1 MMA, 3-0 UFC), UFC officials on Tuesday announced.

UFC on FOX 5 takes place Dec. 8 at KeyArena in Seattle. The Caraway-Easton bantamweight fight will be part of the FUEL TV-broadcast preliminary card prior to the main card on FOX.

Is it just me or is Easton boring as hell? Say what you want about lay n prayers... At least they are fighting. All I see this guy do is hold the center of the octogon and then yell a bunch like he wrecked the dude after the fight.

Maybe my expectations are just too high because he is a little guy.

That rhymes.

Easton hasn't been in a boring fight in my opinion.

He destroyed Bryon Bloodworth, back and fourth with Papazian. I also didn't recall the Ivan fight to be boring, but I don't remember a lot of it.

This. The Ivan fight did have it's slow moments but I didn't consider it boring.

It looks like he had a lot of finishes back in the day. Maybe they just need a smaller octogon for the little guys like back in WEC.

Yes she is dating him. I found that out when Bryan Caraway fought Mitch Gagnon. I don't know why it just seemed odd for some reason to me.

But with the change of fights I think my prediction just got a lot easier. Originally I was going out on a limb and taking T.J in the original matchup. Now I think Easton is just to strong for Caraway and should be able to keep the fight standing and win a Decision. If it goes to the ground Caraway could possibly catch Easton and submit him. But I'm thinking Easton is just too big and strong and will keep this fight standing for the most part.
