Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has a revision for its upcoming UFC on FUEL TV 5 fight card and line-up, scheduled for Sept. 29, 2012 at the Capital FM Arena in Nottingham, England.

Top welterweight prospect Pascal Krauss (10-1) was forced to bow out of his 185-pound affair opposite undefeated grappling ace Gunnar Nelson (9-0-1) after suffering "bruised ribs, an inflamed chest muscle and a dislocated vertebra" thanks to a kick to the breadbasket during training.

Sherdog.com has it straight from the "Panzer's" mouth:

"I can't laugh, can't cough, can't talk loudly or sleep without waking up at least 10 times at night. I tried getting over the pain using medication, but it was just too strong. I am devastated as it's already the second time I had to cancel a fight due to injury. I apologize to Gunnar and his camp, I would have loved nothing more than being able to compete with him. I was looking forward to this fight so much."

Replacing Krauss with less than two weeks to go will be Ultimate Fighter (TUF) season seven contestant DaMarques Johnson (16-11), who was recently stopped by Mike Swick on the main card of UFC on Fox 4. TUF 11 contestant Rich Attonito (10-5) was originally slated to face Nelson, but had concerns about making the welterweight limit on such short notice.

UFC on FUEL TV 5 will be headlined by a heavyweight battle pitting Stefan Struve vs. Stipe Miocic. In addition, bantamweight brawler Brad Pickett will take on Yves Jabouin while The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 15: "Live" contestant Andy Ogle goes to war against fellow featherweight and TUF veteran Akira Corassani.
