Ray Mercer, Bobby Green Off Friday's King of the Cage Card

Injuries have forced Ray Mercer and Bobby Green out of this Friday's King of the Cage event on HDNet in Detroit, Mich.

Matt Flynn, who is assisting KOTC promoter Terry Trebilcock on Friday's card, confirmed the changes to MMAFighting.com. Flynn is the promoter of the Michigan-based XCC and four of his past XCC champions are competing on the KOTC card.

Former WBO boxing champion and Olympic gold medalist Mercer was slated to fight Ron Sparks in Mercer's follow-up to his MMA debut a year ago where he scored a nine-second KO over Tim Sylvia.

Green will be replaced by Jason Holmes against Daron Cruickshank and the fight has been changed to a non-title fight.

The current main card fights are:

Jake Rosholt vs. Jeremy Horn
Joe Doerksen vs. Chad Herrick
Steve Berger vs. Walon Lowe
Brad Burrick vs. Brandon Hunt
David Shepherd vs. Dom O'Grady
Jason Holmes vs. Daron Cruickshank
Ben Lagman vs. Angelo Popofski
