Ben Rothwell and Elvis Sinosic Forced Off of UFC 110
According to a report on UFC.com , Elvis Sinosic and Ben Rothwell will not be competing come Saturday night.
Sinosic, who was selected to fight on the card due to his Australian heritage, has come up lame with an injured shoulder.
He was scheduled to face off against fellow Aussie Chris Haseman who handed Sinosic his first ever defeat back in 1997.
No replacement has been named.
Rothwell meanwhile was scheduled to fight Mirko "Cro-Cop" Filipovic but has come down with an undisclosed illness.
The UFC was able to secure the services of Anthony Perosh a 37 year-old Australian who fights*in both the*light heavyweight and heavyweight divisions.*so they wouldn't have to force Cro-Cop completely off the card.
Perosh is a two time UFC veteran who lost to Jeff Monson at UFC 61 and Christian Wellisch at UFC 66.
Perosh is 10-5 overall*and lost to undercard fighter James Te Huna last August in the finals of the Cage Fighting Championships light heavyweight tournament.
