“Sad to say but tomorrow I won’t be fighting. Long story short, the weight cut was going super smooth, everything on point. Came back to nap before I hit the last 5 lbs. Woke up after a two hour nap, started throwing up and didn’t stop for 6-7 hours. Still throwing up this morning but it has slowed down. The UFC performance institute nutrition and staff tried everything to get my stomach under control before they had to make the call to start rehydrating. Shout out to them, they are super knowledgeable and professional. I want to apologize to my opponent Jordan Griffin and his camp, stepped up to give us a fight. We will get this set up at a later date. Thanks to the UFC for giving me another opportunity, we will get back to work and be ready for the next one. Sorry my body couldn’t make this happen.”

There is no word at this time as to whether or not UFC officials will try rebooking to bout or if the fighters will go their separate ways.

UFC Fight Night: Eye vs. Calvillo takes place on Saturday, June 13 from the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada with Jessica Eye and Cynthia Calvillo headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, which airs live on ESPN.
