The last week of fight announcements in the UFC was as much about putting out fires as it was creating some interesting new matchups.  Injuries forced changes to several cards including the upcoming TUF Nations finale and the FOX UFC Saturday card in Orlando.

Ultimate Fighter season 18 runner-up Uriah Hall booked a new fight this week as well as Patrick Cummins, who gets his second shot in the Octagon after stepping up on a week’s notice to face Daniel Cormier on short notice.

We also saw a shift in the women’s division as another Ultimate Fighter alum, Shayna Baszler, was forced out of her fight against Sarah Kaufman.  As it turns out, another fight was just about to fall apart as well, which opened up a slot for Amanda Nunes to step in and take the bout against Kaufman instead.

Let’s take a look at all the fight announcements for the week ending on April 5, 2014:
