Rising middleweight contenders Constantinos Philippou and Nick Ring will compete on UFC 154's main card after all.

The fighters have taken a spot previously reserved for light heavyweights Chad Griggs and Cyrille Diabate, who have been moved to the preliminary card.

UFC officials recently made the change to the card, which takes place Nov. 17 at Montreal's Bell Centre. Welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre and interim titleholder Carlos Condit meet in the pay-per-view headliner.

I ain't complaining about the switch.

I don't see why hommick who lost his last three fights is on the main card as well.

Would rather see bocek vs dos anjos
Or cote vs sakara. Someone will get knocked out.

Ring vs philippou is main card worthy.
I still think McGee won that fight against ring

That fight had no business being on the main card. Good switch for the ufc. Like others though, I believe RDA/Bocek deserves a main card spot. That's one of the more interesting fights on the card. And with the streaks they're both on, it has more meaning than most of the other main card fights. Oh well. I'll be watching all of them so either way is fine by me.

I see Ring taking a beating here. I think he survives 3 full rounds but his face is going to be a bit of a mess afterwards. I like Nick Ring but he should be 1-3 in the ufc and Philippou is on another level right now.

Yea Diabate is going to pick Griggs apart. I'll be really surprised if we don't see a finish in that fight where as Im fairly confident the Ring fight will go to a decision.
