Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will be tinkering with its upcoming UFC on FUEL TV 3 fight card, scheduled for May 15, 2012 at the Patriot Center in Fairfax, Virginia.

That's because lightweight banger Aaron Riley was forced to withdraw from the network-televised event for undisclosed reasons and has been replaced by promotion newcomer Marcus LeVesseur.

The 21-5 "Prospect" will throw down against struggling Ultimate Fighter (TUF) veteran Cody McKenzie (12-2), who tweeted the update earlier today:
