Nick Ring (13-1 MMA, 3-1 UFC) is out of tonight's UFC 154 event, and his fight with fellow middleweight Constantinos Philippou (11-2 MMA, 4-1 UFC) has been canceled.

UFC officials today announced Ring fell ill and wasn't cleared to compete.

Officials subsequently announced lightweight grapplers Rafael dos Anjos (17-6 MMA, 6-4 UFC) and Mark Bocek (11-4 MMA, 7-4 UFC) have taken their spot on the pay-per-view main card.

Really.. Thought Costa was a lock and had a huge amount on him, as well as a solid parlay option

Very very disappointing. I'm also scrambling to switch my bets.

Damn. Oh well. It didn't effect my parlay any.

Hope to see philippou soon

Ring looked awful at the weigh-ins. When he first walked on stage he was dark around the eyes and looked out of it.

Damnit Ring.... Costa was definitely the lock of the card imo. He had decent odds IRL too, I was gonna try to put some cash on him last minute.

A guy coming off an injury like he did is not the lock of this card, whether he wins tonight or not.

This is depressing, I was really looking forward to seeing one of my faves, costa, fight tonight :( They should re-schedule it for the Seattle card

Bummer, at least Costa will still get his checks, without having to fight, and gets to watch an event for free.

Poor Jay. Has anyone heard from jjeans since this was announced? Should we start a search party?

He seemed relatively happy on Facebook. Nobody wants to see their favourite fighter get destroyed

My guess would be since Ufc 155 has only 11 fights
They reschedule it to then

Its a shame really, I get so few chances to read Ring and Pou in the same sentence. Looks like ill have to pick up one of DD's novels
