MMA Fighting’s Ariel Helwani is reporting that Nick Ring vs. Constantinos Philippou has been scratched from tonight’s UFC 154 card. According to Helwani’s tweet, Ring was not feeling well and the doctor refused to clear him.

Philippou’s manager, Lex McMahon, told Helwani that the UFC will not be seeking a last minute replacement for Ring.

The removal means at Mark Bocek vs. Rafael Dos Anjos will be moved to the main card and Antonio Carvalho vs. Rodrigo Damnn will now fight on the FX card.
