As the fallout from the cancellation of UFC 151 continues, the promotion has moved two other bouts that had been scheduled for September 1st to its upcoming October 5th card in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

A lightweight bout between Danny Castillo and Michael Johnson will now take place at UFC on FX 5.

Castillo (14-4) has won three straight bouts since losing by unanimous decision to Jacob Volkmann last August, while Johnson (11-6) is coming off back-to-back wins over Shane Roller and Tony Ferguson.

Another lightweight tilt between the aforementioned Roller and Volkmann has also been moved to October 5th.

Roller (11-6) scored a UD win over John Alessio in July to end a three fight losing skid, while Volkmann (14-3) had his five fight win streak ended by submission artist Paul Sass, at UFC 146 in May.

Recently the UFC announced that a welterweight bout between Jake Ellenberger and Jay Hieron, originally scheduled for UFC 151, had also been moved to UFC on FX 5.

The upcoming October 5th event will feature a heavyweight bout between Travis Browne and Antonio Silva in the main event.
