With Tomasz Drwal being forced to withdraw from the match-up with David Heath at UFC 81 due to a knee injury, it was believed that the entire bout would be scrapped, but MMAWeekly.com has confirmed that Heath will now fight Anthony Ruiz, rounding out the card with a total of nine fights.

Recently defeating former Ultimate Fighter season two finalist Brad Imes at the Palace Fighting Championship show in California, Ruiz has won his last six fights in a row, including Imes and another UFC alum, Bobby Southworth.

he just seemed like a journeyman who would lose the big fights, but he won those 2 recent ones, this decision win over Imes is very impressive, i think he should be able to sub Heath but could be KTFO at any time

Will be a good fight if it does happen (ufc still say only 8 fights)
