The fallout from the cancellation of UFC 151 is still happening less than 8 hours after the initial announcement was made.

UFC officials continue to scramble to find homes for the bouts that were originally scheduled for next weekend’s card, and two more have ended up on the UFC on FX 5 show set for Oct. 5 in Minnesota.

Lightweights Danny Castillo and Michael Johnson will move their fight from September to October, as will Shane Roller and Jacob Volkmann.

Both fights will now take place on the upcoming UFC on FX 5 show.

More movement is expected to take place for the undercard bouts of UFC 151 as the promotion looks to move everyone to new cards.
