And the UFC 151 fallout is officially underway. Just hours after cancelling their September 1st show because Dan Henderson tore the MCL in his knee – or due to light heavyweight king Jon Jones declining a last-second scrap against Chael Sonnen, however you want to look at it – the card’s co-main event between Jake Ellenberger (Pictured) and Jay Hieron has been moved to “UFC on FX: Browne vs. Bigfoot.”

The 170-pounders will now serve as the co-featured attraction in the October 5th bash.

Ellenberger was upset by Martin Kampmann in his last outing. “The Juggernaut” had rattled off six consecutive victories prior to coming into contact with Kampmann’s knee.

Hieron will be riding an 11-1 run into the Octagon. The veteran’s lone blemish during his current streak came via split decision to Bellator champ Ben Askren last October. The 36-year-old lost both of his bouts under the UFC’s watch, with his last appearance coming in October of 2005.

FYI – In June 2006, Hieron posted a unanimous decision win over Ellenberger in an IFL bout.

Target Center in Minneapolis will host the festivities.

Here is the show’s revised lineup:

Preliminary Card:

Darren Uyenoyama vs. Phil Harris

Bart Palaszewski vs. Diego Nunes

Carlo Prater vs. Marcus LeVesseur

Jeremy Stephens vs. Yves Edwards

Mike Pierce vs. Aaron Simpson

Justin Edwards vs. Josh Neer

Main Card:

Matt Mitrione vs. Rob Broughton

Jussier da Silva vs. John Dodson

Jake Ellenberger vs. Jay Hieron

Travis Browne vs. Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva
