Nick Ring and Akira Corassani out, Steven Siler vs. Mike Brown and Josh Samman vs. Uriah Hall set to UFC on FOX Sports 1 1

“The Ultimate Fighter” season 14’s Akira Corassani (11-3-1) vs.  former WEC featherweight champion Mike Brown (26-8) was set for UFC on FOX Sports 1 1 in Boston. Corassani has been forced out of his bout which was set for August 17th. Stepping in for Corassani is another TUF 14 fighter Steven Siler (22-10). Siler is (4-1) inside the UFC octagon. Siler was undefeated at (3-0) going into his bout with Darren Elkins where he was defeated by unanimous decision. Siler re-entered the win column in April of this year where he earned a decision over Kurt Holobaugh at UFC 159 Jones vs. Sonnen. Brown was playing with the idea of a possible retirement, but is riding a two fight win streak and will put that streak on the line against Siler. Another change to the card is in the middleweight division. Nick Ring (13-2) has been forced out of his fight with the much talked about TUF 17 runner-up, Uriah Hall (7-3). Stepping in for Ring to face Hall is fellow cast member, Josh Samman (10-2). Samman who was not very friendly with Hall won in his UFC debut where he earned a second round TKO win over Kevin Casey at the TUF 17 finale: Faber vs. Jorgensen .Later, that same night Hall was defeated by decision in a three round fight to TUF 17 winner Kelvin Gastelum. Hall will look for his first UFC win, as Samman will look to take his second victory inside the octagon.
