UFC Poster 154 Georges St Pierre Carlos Condit

To no apparent fault of their own, Chad Griggs and Cyrille Diabate have been demoted. The light heavyweights have been removed from the pay-per-view portion of UFC 154.

The 205-pounders will now appear in the card’s prelims, which airs live on FX at 8PM ET/5PM PT.

Middleweights Nick Ring and Constantinos Philippou received the bump to the main card. Ring’s Canadian roots likely played a role in the switcheroo.
