During Thursday’s pre-fight press conference, UFC president Dana White (Pictured) jokingly hoped none of the athletes in attendance fell on stage and hurt themselves before Saturday’s scraps. Given the rash of injuries that have ravaged several Octagon shows in 2012, the tongue-in-cheek comment carried a sense of seriousness to it. Well… While none of “UFC on FOX: Henderson vs. Diaz’s” featured fighters suffered an injury, White reported Friday morning Tim Means slipped in the sauna while trying to cut weight for today’s weigh-ins and knocked himself out. White said Marcus LeVesseur has agreed to serve as a last-second substitute to fight Abel Trujillo in the card’s prelims. LeVesseur was originally slated to face Michael Chiesa in the event, but was pulled just four days ago after Chiesa became ill. That came only two days after Brendan Schaub was removed from the lineup after opponent Lavar Johnson pulled his groin. Here is the show’s revised agenda: Preliminary Card: (Facebook 4:20PM ET/1:20PM PT) Scott Jorgensen vs. John Albert (FX 5PM ET/2PM PT) Dennis Siver vs. Nam Phan Marcus LeVesseur vs. Abel Trujillo Daron Cruickshank vs. Henry Martinez Joe Proctor vs. Ramsey Nijem Raphael Assuncao vs. Mike Easton Jeremy Stephens vs. Yves Edwards Main Card: (FOX 8PM ET/5PM PT) Matt Brown vs. Mike Swick BJ Penn vs. Rory MacDonald Mauricio “Shogun” Rua vs. Alexander Gustafsson Nate Diaz vs. Benson Henderson (UFC lightweight champion)
