UFC on FX 5: Browne vs. Silva
UFC on FX 5 is an upcoming mixed martial arts event to be held by the Ultimate Fighting Championship on October 5, 2012 (rescheduled from September 7, 2012) at the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
The cancellation of UFC 151: Jones vs. Henderson led to a handful of bouts being shifted to UFC on FX 5. Those moved bouts included: Jay Hieron vs. Jake Ellenberger; Dennis Hallman vs. Thiago Tavares; Jacob Volkmann vs. Shane Roller; and Danny Castillo vs. Michael Johnson.
Matt Mitrione vs. Rob Broughton was cancelled for a second time (it had previously been scheduled for UFC on FOX 4: Shogun vs. Vera in August 2012). Mitrione was then matched up with Phil De Fries, and the bout was moved to UFC 155: Dos Santos vs. Velasquez 2.
Hallman missed weight and was immediately released by the UFC thus scrapping his bout against Tavares.
