MacDonald out, Foster in vs. Brown at UFC 123

by Steven Marrocco and Dann Stupp | source:

A knee injury has forced Rory MacDonald (10-1 MMA, 1-1 UFC) out of next month's UFC 123 event, and Brian Foster (14-5 MMA, 2-2 UFC) has agreed to step in as a replacement and fight fellow welterweight Matt Brown (13-9 MMA, 4-3 UFC). today confirmed the switch with sources close to the show, though UFC officials have not formally announced it.

UFC 123 takes place Nov. 20 at The Palace of Auburn Hills in suburban Detroit. Foster vs. Brown is expected to keep its spot on the night's Spike TV "UFC Prelims" broadcast.

That one-hour special precedes the night's pay-per-view main card.

 Wish they would scrub this and put Karo Hallman on instead.  Why can't he ever be televised?
