    An apparent brain injury has sidelined featherweight Eddie Yagin from his UFC on FOX 5 bout against Dennis Siver.
    Yagin's manager, Jason House, confirmed the news to MMA Fighting's Ariel Helwani, which was originally reported by MMAWeekly.com.
    According to House, Yagin, a Honolulu native who formerly trained with San Diego's Alliance MMA, became woozy after returning home from a sparring session, and checked himself into a local hospital.
    "He suffered it in sparring on Saturday," House said. "The injury was not the result of a certain strike or exchange. [He] came home, had a headache, started to vomit whatever liquids he drank and then decided to go to the ER the next day."
    House said that according to Yagin's family, doctors said Yagin has swelling on his brain, which caused pressure and led to his headaches. While Yagin remains hospitalized, as of this writing, doctors believe surgery won't be necessary.
    The 33-year old Yagin earned Fight of the Night honors in his most recent bout, a thrilling brawl against Mark Hominick at UFC 145, which he won via unanimous decision. He's 16-5-1 in his MMA career.
    The bout with Siver was originally scheduled for UFC 151 on Sept. 1, which was canceled. There's no word yet on who might replace Yagin on Dec. 8 in Seattle.

    Nam Phan will step in for the injured Eddie Yagin to meet Siver at next month's event. Phan-Siver is expected to be part of the preliminary card. UFC officials on Wednesday announced the switch.
