UFC Fight Night 44 loses Myles Jury vs. Abel Trujillo due to injury, but gains Joe Ellenberger vs. Johnny Case

Case will join the big leagues to fill in for Frank Trevino.


Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is headed back to "The Lone Star State" for UFC Fight Night 44 on June 28, 2014, inside AT&T Center San Antonio, Texas, headlined by a featherweight bangfest pitting Cub Swanson against Jeremy Stephens, airing on FOX Sports 1 with "Prelims" bouts streaming live on the promotion's new "Fight Pass" digital network.

Speaking of which ...

Resurrection Fighting Alliance (RFA) lightweight Johnny Case has been called up to face Joe Ellenberger on FOX Sports 1, after Frank Trevino bailed on the upcoming scrap. In addition, an injury to Myles Jury has canceled his 155-pound slugfest opposite Abel Trujillo.

Trevino was expected to take over for "The Fury," according to FOX Sports, but was unable to see it through.

That means Jury vs. Trujillo will likely be pushed ahead to a later date, since Jury is only expected to be sidelined for a couple of weeks. To see how these changes affect the UFC Fight Night 44 fight card and line up click here.
