Sources with knowledge of the lineup change confirmed the news to MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com), and UFC officials are expected to make the booking official for UFC on FOX Sports 1 1 soon.

UFC on FOX Sports 1 1 takes place Aug. 17 at TD Garden in Boston. The show will be the UFC's debut on the new FOX Sports 1 cable network, which launches the same day.

Samman and Hall were castmates on Season 17 of "The Ultimate Fighter" this past spring. And while each made it to the semifinals and were expected to meet at the TUF 17 Finale, only Hall reached the the finals.

Despite being upset in the semifinals by eventual winner Kelvin Gastelum, Samman was given a fight on the TUF 17 Finale and stopped Kevin Casey with a second-round TKO for a win in his official UFC debut. That ran the Florida-based 25-year-old's streak to two, with seven wins in his past eight official fights – with just a Bellator loss to Dan Cramer keeping him from perfection over that stretch. Nine of his 10 wins have come by stoppage.

Hall was a heavy favorite on "TUF 17," but in the tournament finals against Gastelum, he appeared off his game compared to some of the destructive finishes he had in the "TUF" house and Gastelum won a split decision. The former Ring of Combat fighter will be looking for his first official UFC victory.

Ring, who fought on "TUF 11," was looking to get back in the win column after a March split-decision loss to Chris Camozzi at UFC 158 in Montreal. That was his second setback in three fights.

With the change to the lineup, the latest UFC on FOX Sports 1 1 card now includes: MAIN CARD (FOX Sports 1, 8 p.m. ET)

    Mauricio Rua vs. Chael Sonnen
    Travis Browne vs. Alistair Overeem
    Yuri Alcantara vs. Urijah Faber
    Thiago Alves vs. Matt Brown
    Uriah Hall vs. Josh Samman*
    Michael "The Menace" Johnson vs. Joe Lauzon

PRELIMINARY CARD (FOX Sports 1, 6 p.m. ET)

    Michael McDonald vs. Brad Pickett
    Conor McGregor vs. Andy Ogle
    Mike Brown vs. Akira Corassani
    Diego Brandao vs. Daniel Pineda

PRELIMINARY CARD (Facebook, 4:30 p.m. ET)

    Manny Gamburyan vs. Cole Miller
    Cody Donovan vs. Ovince St. Preux
    Ramsey Nijem vs. James Vick

Dana has screwed up making this match like 3 times now.  So LOL @ an injury finally forcing his hand.

Always thought this was going to be the finale, but I'm glad Kelvin shocked us all. Phone Post 3.0

Thinking of getting rid of my cable, but I am keeping it until after this card. Very solid card top to bottom... Wish I could get FX1 w/out cable!
