Does this really need a new thread? It's been posted in the Alves thread.

Taking a fight on short notice takes balls, against Fitch it takes a huge pair.

Much respect for Killa B, way to step up!

if this is true, ellenberger gets screwed? he may still get paid though. I'm glad they got a replacement though.
I can't see the UFC shafting him like that, was nothign to do with him what happened.

Either way STOKED this fight is on!

Hours after learning opponent Thiago Alves failed a CT scan and was scratched from the card, his opponent, Jon Fitch (21-3 MMA, 11-1 UFC), has agreed to replace Jake Ellenberger (22-5 MMA, 1-1 UFC) and fight Ben Saunders (8-1 MMA, 4-1 UFC) on the UFC 111 pay-per-view main card.

Multiple sources today confirmed with MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) the change to Saturday's card, which takes place at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J.

A source told MMAjunkie.com said Saunders specifically asked for the new bout when Fitch became available.

Ellenberger has been promised his "show" and "win" money to make up for the UFC's last-minute switch, we're told.

An official announcement is expected any time now from the UFC.

For complete coverage of UFC 111, stay tuned to the UFC Rumors section of MMAjunkie.com.
