A featherweight bout intended for the canceled UFC 151 card will instead take place at UFC on FOX 5, as Dennis Siver (20-8 MMA, 9-5 UFC) meets Eddie Yagin (16-5-1 MMA, 1-1 UFC).

Additionally, "The Ultimate Fighter: Live" winner Mike Chiesa (8-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC) meets Rafaello Oliveira (15-5 MMA, 2-4 UFC) in a lightweight contest.

UFC officials today announced the two new contests, as well as confirming the John Albert (7-3 MMA, 1-2 UFC) vs. Scott Jorgensen (13-6 MMA, 2-2 UFC) bantamweight fight reported earlier today by MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). All three bouts are expected to take place on the evening's preliminary card.

Siver/Yagin was the fight I was most excited for at 151

Chiesa/Oliveira ... nothing really gets me excited for this fight other than hoping Raffy gets subbed plus was hoping for a bigger name for Chiesa's first fight.

I love the fight card though and I just can't wait to get tixs

I'm thinking Yaggin will be a huge under dog in this fight won $71 off his last fight hopefully I can go back to the well
