The UFC 173 fight card goes back into the shop for repairs ... yet again.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has re-booked a bantamweight contest featuring Chico Camus vs. Chris Holdsworth for the upcoming UFC 173 pay-per-view (PPV) event, scheduled for May 24, 2014, at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

"King" fills in for the ousted Kyung Ho Kang.

Camus (14-4) is riding back-to-back unanimous decision wins. After outpointing the aforementioned Kyung Ho Kang at UFC 164 last August, the Roufusport product outworked Yaotzin Meza as part of the UFC on FOX 10 event back in January.

But he's got a stiff test ahead of him.

Holdsworth (5-0) captured The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) season 18 trophy with a second-round strangulation over Davey Grant. Prior to his win on the combat sports reality show, the rising bantamweight prospect notched four straight submission victories on the regional circuit.

Who ya' got?

UFC 173 will be headlined by a 135-pound title fight featuring Renan Barao putting his belt up for grabs against TJ Dillashaw. Elsewhere on the card, Junior dos Santos slugs it out with Stipe Miocic while Francisco Rivera rumbles with Takeya Mizugaki.
