Another change has hit the preliminary card of the UFC's August return to Boston. Akira Corassani has been forced out of his featherweight bout against former WEC champion Mike Brown, and another Season 14 "Ultimate Fighter" alum, Steven Siler, takes his place

I think I might go with siler on this one. Brown is just a shadow of his former self

I'm a big fan of Akira and Siler.

I think Akira would have got outwrestled. Siler however on the feet will be able to keep his reach to keep Brown at a distance comfortable enough for him to outsrike him.

I would have picked against Brown anyway just cause I'm an Akira fan boy but I think my picks percentage will be much happier in picking Siler than Akira.

Interesting to see if Siler can get a finish if he pushes the pace in the third round...
