The 50th UFC Fight Night card has suffered a change.

Ian Entwistle and Rob Font, who were scheduled to meet Dustin Kimura and Chris Beal, respectively, at the Fox Sports 1 card in Ledyard, Connecticut, on Sept. 5, are out of the card with injuries. With the change, Kimura and Beal will now face each other inside the Octagon.

BAMMA veteran Beal (9-0) made his UFC debut in April, scoring a vicious second-round knockout over Patrick Williams. Prior to the bout, the bantamweight scored two TKO finishes in seven professional fights.

More experienced inside the Octagon, Kimura (11-2) looks for his third win under the UFC banner after tapping out Chico Camus and Jon Delos Reyes. The Hawaiian fighter racked up a perfect 9-0 record as a featherweight before entering the UFC in 2013.

UFC Fight Night 50 takes place at the Foxwoods Resort & Casino in Ledyard and is headlined by a middleweight rematch between "Jacare" Souza and Gegard Mousasi. The current UFN 50 fight card is the following:

Ronaldo Souza vs. Gegard Mousasi
Alistair Overeem vs. Ben Rothwell
Matt Mitrione vs. Derrick Lewis
Joe Lauzon vs. Mike Chiesa
Charles Oliveira vs. Nik Lentz
John Moraga vs. Justin Scoggins
Al Iaquinta vs. Rodrigo Damm
Rafael Natal vs. Chris Camozzi
Chris Beal vs. Dustin Kimura
Sean Soriano vs. Andre Fili
