Inoue made the announcement himself through Instagram:


With little time to find a replacement fighter to battle Lausa, the bout as a whole has been scrapped.

It is also unknown at this time if the bout is going to be rescheduled or if the fighters will get new opponents down the line.

Neither Lausa or the UFC have commented on the fight cancelation.
