Anthony Perosh steps in for Ben Rothwell against Cro Cop

With only 48 hours remaining until the Saturday night’s Australian debut for the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s, there were several major changes made to the evening’s card. The biggest: Anthony Perosh (10-5 MMA, 0-2 UFC) replaces the ill Ben Rothwell (30-7 MMA, 0-1 UFC) in a UFC 110 main-card fight with Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic (25-7-2 MMA, 2-3 UFC), once considered among the most feared strikers in the world. The Australian Perosh is returning to the octagon for the first time since his 0-2 stint with the company in 2006.

Also of note, an unexpected shoulder injury suffered by Elvis Sinosic has forced the cancellation of his preliminary-card bout with fellow Australian Chris Haseman.

UFC 110 takes place Saturday at Acer Arena in Sydney, Australia.
