01:36 PM ET 12.03 | Michael Chiesa, the season 15 winner of FX's 'The Ultimate Fighter: Live', has been removed from Saturday's UFC on FOX 5 fight card due to an undisclosed illness. Chiesa was originally scheduled to face Rafaello Oliveira before the Brazilian withdrew from the card due to a broken hand. Chiesa was then scheduled to face collegiate wrestling standout Marcus LeVesseur until the TUF winner was forced out of the bout. No replacement for LeVesseur has been named and the bout has been scrapped from the card.
