Ellenberger-Rocha Scratched from UFC 172

A change to Saturday's UFC 172 card...
Joe Ellenberger's UFC debut will have to wait, as Vagner Rocha, who recently replaced Yancy Medeiros against the Octagon newcomer, has now been forced out of Saturday's UFC 172 card due to an injury suffered while getting in some last-minute training in Baltimore.

The UFC 172 card will now proceed with 10 bouts, with the Danny Castillo vs. Charlie Brenneman moving to the FOX Sports 1 prelim section of the event.
