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 a new opponent for Heath stepped in at the eleventh hour, rounding out the card with a total of nine fights.

Originally, sources indicated to MMAWeekly that Anthony Ruiz, who recently defeated former Ultimate Fighter season two finalist Brad Imes at the Palace Fighting Championship, was accepting the bout with Heath.

The Ultimate Fighting Championship on Tuesday morning did confirm that Heath is still on the fight card for UFC 81, however, his opponent is not Anthony Ruiz, but Pennsylvania light heavyweight prospect Tim Boetsch.
