FYI- doesn't look like anything too serious for Chiesa. Just a bad case of the shingles. He'll be fighting the same opponent this January.

Asked Holloway if they found someone else or just cancelled:@BlessedMMA: @HolyHackZack not to sure just my man they just said thanks for stepping up but it's fineNot sure what to think if this. Almost looks like they overbooked card and were OK with a couple cancellations.

And it sounds like Holloway isn't happening either. Asked him on twitter and response I received was:@BlessedMMA: @HolyHackZack didn't get it!Sucks, hope they found another replacement instead of just pulling 2 fights out once they already have my ticket money.

I don't get it. Guy's already had a full training camp. He can't get over the illness in a few days? Must be pretty bad.
