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.
