A fight between UFC welterweights Hector Lombard and Brad Tavares has been scratched from UFC on FOX 23.

A UFC official passed on the news to MMAjunkie, and people close to both fighters confirmed it. The parties asked to remain anonymous because the news hadn’t been announced.

In its place, the promotion has booked a fight between middleweights Alessio Di Chirico (10-1 MMA, 1-1 UFC) and Eric Spicely (9-1 MMA, 1-1 UFC). UFC officials today announced the contest, which was previously reported by FloCombat.com.
