UFC Fight Night 49 is getting a shake up, Demian Maia Vs. Mike Pyle and the Brandon Thatch vs. Jordan Mein fight is now off. Both Jordan Mein and Demian Maia had to pull out due to injuries. Now, Mike Pyle will take on Brandon Thatch at UFC Fight Night 49.

Here is what the UFC sent out on Wednesday:

Injuries to Demian Maia and Brandon Thatch have forced them from their August 23 bouts against Mike Pyle and Jordan Mein, respectively.

Pyle and Mein weren’t without opponents for the Tulsa event for long though, as the two welterweight standouts will now face each other in the UFC Fight Night co-main event.

The FOX Sports 1 card is headlined by the five-round lightweight matchup between Benson Henderson and Rafael Dos Anjos.

UFC Fight Night 49 goes down on Aug. 23 at BOK Center in Tulsa, Okla. The majority of the card is expected to air on FOX Sports 1 following a couple of prelims on UFC Fight Pass.
