Two Changes to Brisbane Card

 

The UFC’s return to Brisbane, Australia on March 20 has seen two changes to the fight card.

In the flyweight division, an injury to Justin Scoggins has forced his bout against Ben Nguyen to be called off.

In the lightweight division, visa issues have removed Abel Trujillo from his bout against Ross Pearson. Pearson will remain on the card to fight Canada's Chad Laprise. UFC officials are seeking a replacement to fight Laprise's original opponent for the event, Brazil's Alan Patrick.

In the UFC Fight Night main event, which airs on March 19 in the United States on FOX Sports 1, Frank Mir battles Mark Hunt.
