A few days after Matt Riddle (6-3 MMA, 7-3 UFC) replaced injured Stephen Thompson (6-1 MMA, 1-1 UFC) at UFC 154, his opponent, Besam Yousef (6-1 MMA, 0-1 UFC), also has been forced off the card.

Replacing the welterweight is veteran John Maguire (18-4 MMA, 1-1 UFC).

UFC officials today announced the change.

UFC 154 takes place Nov. 17 at Montreal's Bell Centre.

The night's main card, including UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre vs. interim titleholder Carlos Condit, airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FX and Facebook. Riddle vs. Maguire, which is the card's 13th fight, is slated for the Facebook stream.

I'm a huge fan of Maguires, so this is excellent news for me. Ever since his insane come back with Edwards, he's had my attention.

Much better than Thompson vs. Yousef or Riddle vs. Yousef.

This fight should be very entertaining.

His suspension is up. It was up right around the time it was officially announced, about 5 months after he was caught.
