Ramsey Nijem (5-2 MMA, 1-1 UFC) has suffered an undisclosed injury, and Danny Castillo (12-4 MMA, 2-1 UFC) has taken his place in a UFC 141 fight with fellow lightweight Anthony Njokuani (14-5 MMA, 1-1 UFC).

UFC officials today announced the change.

UFC 141 takes place Dec. 30 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

While the main card airs on pay-per-view, Castillo vs. Njoukani is slated to air as part of Spike TV's two-bout "UFC Prelims" special.

But Last Call Castillo takes this fight.

I figured Njoukani would demolish Ramsey anyway.

Agreed, Be interesting to see if Castillo trys and stand with Nijoukani or goes right for the ground game.

I think the original fight of Njoukani and Ramsey would have been extremely lopsided in Njoukani's favor. I think he still has an edge on Castillo, but the fight will be more interesting.
I say Njoukani out points Castillo with his unique striking.

Castillo is a bit of a dark horse in the lightweight division in my opinion.
