By Mike Fridley Sep 21, 2015
Ultimate Fighting Championship has shuffled the deck for UFC 193.

According to the Brisbane Times, William Macario has been removed from the card due to injury. His scheduled opponent, Brendan O'Reilly, will now take on James Moontasri in a 170-pound contest.

“Moontasri has great movement and balance, but ultimately my focus is on my abilities and I'm sharpening them to the point where regardless of who it is I fight, they're in for a bad night,” O’Reilly told the Australian outlet.

O’Reilly (6-1) is 1-1 in the UFC. He last saw action in a unanimous-decision victory against Vik Grujic on May 10.

Moontasri (8-3) is 1-2 in the Octagon and was last seen being submitted in the first round by Kevin Lee.

UFC 193 goes down at Etihad Stadium in Melbourne, Australia, on Nov. 15, and will be headlined by Ronda Rousey and Holly Holm.
