TUF Winner Mike Chiesa Off UFC On Fox 5 Card Due To Illness

Mike Chiesa, who earned the title of Ultimate Fighter, has been forced off this Saturday’s UFC on Fox 5 card due to an illness. UFC officials made the announcement late Sunday night.

Chiesa (8-0) and Marcus LeVesseur (22-6) had moved into the role of featured prelim fight after Brendan Schaub-Lavar Johnson was scratched.

With the card just a few days away, it appears LeVesseur will be removed, as well. He was a replacement for Rafaello Oliveira, Chiesa’s original opponent.
