Ultimately, Scott Jorgensen gets his wish because his fight with Jeff Curran will now be on the main card for the pay-per-view at UFC 137 after an injury forced Brad Tavares off the card.

UFC officials announced on Friday that Tavares suffered an injury in training and newcomer Clifford Starks will step in to face Dustin Jacoby, but their fight will go back to the Facebook preliminary card.

Now the bantamweight bout between Jorgensen and Curran will get the main card slot originally opened up after the main event between Georges St-Pierre and Carlos Condit was pulled from the card.

As far as the other bout made on Friday, Clifford Starks makes his UFC debut on just one week’s notice. He puts his 7-0 record on the line when he faces fellow Octagon rookie Dustin Jacoby.

The Facebook preliminary card now airs four fights in total including the bout between Jacoby and Starks.
