Update: John Maguire replaces Besam Yousef, will fight Matt Riddle at UFC 154



We have another update!  Matt Riddle, fresh off his 90-day suspension for Marijuana, is headed over to Canada and will NOT battle Assyrian fighter Besam Yousef, who just got injured and forced out of the bout, instead he will tangle with John Maguire.

Riddle failed his UFC 149 drug test following his submission victory over Chris Clements, which was soon overturned.  Riddle released his marijuana license to purchase just a few weeks back to clear the air.  Did it work? Not sure, we will see by the ovation he gets in Montreal on November 17.

Maguire steps in for Yousef, who comes off a UFC on Fuel TV 5 defeat to John Hathaway.

UFC 154 features a welterweight unification bout as champ Georges St Pierre battles interim champ Carlos Condit.   Also, Martin Kampmann looks to derail the hype of Johny Hendricks as they collide in the co-main event of the night.
