UFC Fight Night 24

UFC Fight Night: Nogueira vs. Davis (also known as UFC Fight Night 24) was a mixed martial arts event held by the Ultimate Fighting Championship on March 26, 2011 at the KeyArena in Seattle, Washington.


The event did not lead into the season premiere of The Ultimate Fighter 13 as has been the case for most of that program's seasonal debuts. That program is expected to air on March 30.

On February 19, 2011, Dana White alerted followers on Twitter that Tito Ortiz had to pull out of his fight with Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, after receiving a severe cut on his forehead, and would be replaced by Phil Davis.

On March 5, Duane Ludwig was forced out of his fight with Amir Sadollah due to injury. James Wilks was tapped as his replacement. Wilks then injured himself, and was forced to withdraw from the bout. DaMarques Johnson was the replacement. Also on March 5, Dennis Hallman suffered a knee injury in training and was forced out of his bout against TJ Waldburger. Johny Hendricks stepped in as Hallman's replacement.

On March 16, Nick Pace was forced out of his bout against Michael McDonald due to suffering an injury. Promotional newcomer Edwin Figueroa stepped in as his replacement.

Also on March 16, a broken foot forced Nam Phan out of his rematch with Leonard Garcia and was replaced by Chan Sung Jung creating a rematch from their fight of the night performance at WEC 48: Aldo vs. Faber, which ended in a controversial decision win for Garcia.

The UFC announced via their official Twitter account that five preliminary bouts would stream on Facebook.
